Pattern Description:

This is an instruction booklet. You get 6 pages of photos and instructions explaining how to make this great weekend bag. Instructions are in English. There are no actual pattern pieces because all of the pieces are squares and rectangles and easy to measure onto your fabric.

I call this bag Lola. She is carefree and always ready to go shopping, to the beach, or out to lunch! Finished size: 15 1/2" wide by 13 1/2" deep. One inside pocket, padded handles, fully lined.

You may sell the finished products, but please credit me as the designer. Tutorial itself is protected under copyright law and must not be reproduced, distributed, published, taught without my permission.

I like Lola because she only needs cording, thread and fabric- no hardware. You might even have the supplies in your stash already! She is so easy and soft for packing.

  • Finished bag is 15 1/2"x13 1/2"


  • 1/2 yard print fabric
  • 3/4 yard fabric for lining and bottom
