This pattern is to make a bag featuring a design based on the Volkswagen (VW) Splitscreen (Kombi) Campervan. The bag can be made with or without a shoulder strap so you could also use it as an iPad cover (other tablets are available!). I lined mine with fleece and added a zip for security. The strap is also backed in fabric to stop it stretching and is attached to the bag using two large wooden buttons (buttonholes were stitched using a sewing machine). To make the bag in the photo I used Freedom Echo Recycled Cotton which is in a double knit (DK) weight and gives a firm, not too stretchy finish. You could use Sincere Organic 100% Cotton which comes in some gorgeous colours but of course this is all down to personal preference. This bag was completed using 3 x 50g balls of yarn, two red and one cream (100 metres per ball - you'll need the same meterage if using another brand). Worked on 4mm needles (UK no.8, US6). The finished bag measure approximately 30cm long and 25cm wide (excluding straps). Please note that I am UK based and my patterns are written in UK terms but charts are included to make things easier!
