Basic Skills Necessary:

  • basic understanding to read and layout pattern

Pattern Description:

I love purses with zippers and the front pocket zipper for this bag is hands down the easiest zipper you will ever do- you don't even need a zipper foot for the sewing machine. The top zipper is a little more challenging so a great alternative is a magnetic snap for those newer to the world of zippers (the top zipper requires the use of a zipper foot) whatever you decide, directions are given to complete the bag either way. This modern style hip bag is fully lined and features a zippered front pocket, inner zippered pocket and cell phone pocket. The contrast accent fabric and metal rings give the bag a unique character that will help define you!

The pattern contains step by step instructions with almost 50 color illustrations and photos as well as 13 pages of detailed instructions and full size patterns ready to print. It also has the complete fabric and notion requirements and tips to create a beautiful handbag. Finished bag measures about 10"w x 12"h x 2"d.

Good Mini version of a great bag.  April 29, 2013

I am not an experienced bag maker and I looked for a long time to find just the bag pattern I wanted and this one seemed to fit the bill.

After I downloaded and read the instructions I was a little worried as it all sounded very confusing but as I worked through it it all became clear and I am very happy with the outcome!

I'd definitely be happy to recommend this pattern.

Excellent Lovely pattern  October 29, 2012

this was the very first bag I ever sewed and I totally loved making it. After that I made another two and I'm planning to make more. I love the hip style, so practical for a busy mum like me!
