Pattern Description:

Features
The Uptown Girl is perfect for a day out on the town. This bag may have a minimalist appearance on the exterior, with two slip pockets on the sides for your phone or keys; however, inside you will find a multitude of storage pockets for organisation. Its roomy interior is secured by a recessed zipper and boasts an additional interior zippered divider pocket, PLUS 4 extra slip pockets and 2 pen pockets.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • approx. 30cm (12") X 30cm (12") X 11.5cm (41/2").

Materials:

  • Machine capable of Sewing Pleather
  • Exterior fabric: 45 cm (1/2 yard) of 112cm (44") wide fabric
  • Piece of contrast fabric: 71cm X 30cm (28"X 12") (optional)
  • Lining fabric: 110cm (43") of 112cm (44") wide fabric
  • Fusible interfacing: mid-weight, 40cm (16") of 112cm (44") wide interfacing (the narrower Pellon Shape-Flex SF101 is a good choice, but you will need about 1 yard if you go that route)
  • ByAnnie's Soft & Stable: 46cm X 91cm (18" X 36") (or substitute with Headliner Foam; you can also use fusible fleece, however, you will end up with a bag that is more floppy)
