Pattern Details

A shoulder bag with feature piping highlighting its curves and optional front pocket. The piping could be omitted for beginners although it's easier than it looks. It has a choice of internal pockets with and without a zip or both and zip closure. This bag can be made from any close woven non stretch fabric and allows the option of a contrast pocket or contrast straps. Finished off with a feature button this bag is current, make it for yourself or as a gift for a friend. Save - if you want to save money you could use leftover fabric and omit the metal buckle loops we have used to attach the straps and just add them straight to the front of the bag an allowance will need to be made for the length of the strap to be longer when you are cutting them out (instructions for this option are included in the pattern). You could also omit the zip and have an open top. Splurge - Invest in a feature fabric there are some amazing designs on the market. Invest in 'bag furniture' - bag furniture in this case refers to the metal buckle loops that hold the straps on to the bag we have used square ones but they come in a variety of shapes colours and textures. We have included a feature button and as there is only one you could really go to town on this and invest in something quite special as it is the focal point of the bag. the other thing this bag lends itself to would be to embroider or applique a design on the front pocket for a really unique finish. Copyright Info: Can be used to make bags for sale in small quantities, no mass production. Please do not share the pattern and instructions or re sell. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Finished bag is approx 13" wide by 9" tall by 3" deep
