Basic Skills Necessary:

  • How to use your sewing machine: How to change your stitch length, seam allowances, etc.
  • It's helpful to have already made a simple bag before, but not entirely necessary

Pattern Description:

15 page full color tutorial with photos
17 pages of computer generated pattern pieces (9 pattern pieces total, must be printed and taped together)
Dimensions provided as well as pattern pieces
Detailed construction and zipper instructions

This is the bag everyone has been waiting for! The perfect size for shopping hands-free or taking just-enough-but-not-too-much to that summer outing. People will ask you where you got your designer handbag. Zippers are not scary! 15 pages of full color, tutorial style instructions will walk you through exactly how to install the zips. Learn how to install a wide-opening inset zipper, a technique you can out into use on many other bags as well. The front of the bag features a slip pocket for whatever you need handy and a secure zipper pocket for your phone or wallet. The special front pocket construction allows the pocket to lay flat and keeps the bulk out of the seams. The adjustable strap gives you the option of wearing this cross body or just on one shoulder, and the method of construction allows you to get a full strap out of just a single yard of fabric!

This bag will easily carry your e-reader or trade paperback!
