Pattern Description:

The Satchel bag pattern was designed to make a cute looking, smaller bag with nipped in sides and a cute top handle.

The Satchel bag pattern is considered an intermediate/advanced pattern by my testers.

The pattern comes with instructions for an optional zipped interior pocket.

The finished bag measures approximately 10" x 6.5" x 5" (25cm x 17cm x 12cm) and features a sturdy side gusset, nipped in sides, an adjustable strap and a double magnetic clasp closure.

The pattern has been extensively tested with in depth instructions and clear photographs for the tricky bits!
