Pattern Description:

This bag was created as a gift for my friend, Erica. She liked it so much that I decided to turn it into a pattern. If you haven't noticed, many of my patterns are named after special people in my life :)

This bag is a fairly simple, but anything but boring. It is on the small to medium size with a gussetted side/bottom and one strap. You can make it out of all one fabric, or change it up a bit by making the sided & strap out of a coordinating print. Sometimes I get fancy and add some piping or rick-rack along the seams for a little punch. As always, having fun with it!

Sewing the gusset may be a little challenging for a beginner, but with lots and lots of pins and some patience, you can do it!!
