Pattern Description:

Oh Ruby! Based on my popular free pattern, the Phoebe Bag, the Ruby Bag was born. You can think of Ruby as Phoebe's big sister with a twist. The Ruby Bag is a little bit roomier and comes in 3 variations. You can make it just like the Phoebe from all one fabric, with a pocket front, or with a center panel. As a bonus, when you purchase the Ruby Bag, you have permission to make the Phoebe Bag for sale, just as you would with any other artsy-crafty bag pattern you purchase.
