Pattern Description:

Noriko, as her name suggests, is a 'child of principle' or, in our case, a bag of principle. Noriko uses the principle of a single pattern piece for all sides of the bag. This lightweight bag, both graceful and whimsical, provides wonderful opportunities to showcase your favorite fabric.

One pattern piece makes each of the four panels of this unique teardrop bag. The gentle curve at the base of the bag offers a stable base and a graceful silhouette when full. The two side panels can be tucked in toward the center of the bag when not in use, allowing the bag to close flat for storage or safe keeping. We have matched our beautiful fabrics with ribbon, beads and a button to finish the look.

Note: This design does not use batting or interfacing. Two layers of fabric create a graceful bag with a beautiful drape and femininity.

The Noriko pattern is in PDF format and is 4 pages. There are 3 pages of cover/instructions and 1 page with a pattern piece.
