Pattern Description:

My sister Monica got to a point when she was under using her Diaper bag, but over using her purses. So she asked me to make a not so big Big Bag she called it. So I came up with this shoulder bag. I loved the size so much I use mine as a book bag. This PDF pattern shows you how to sew a 14" x 14" x 4" single strap shoulder bag. It comes with full size sewing pattern pieces, that you can print on your regular printer, then tile the papers together to have a full size paper pattern to cut your pattern pieces. If you sew it with fabric you like both inside and out, it can be reversible. All seam are hidden. ***This is a Personal Use pattern. If you would like to sell the items you make please purchase a Commercial use pattern.
