Inspired by the sun and its rays, Candy is a round lined summer bag with a radiating design on the front. #A practical design# An original design is nice but when the design contributes to make the bag more practical : it's even better! That's why the "rays" on the front of the bag form 4 pockets allowing you be more organized! Additionally you'll find#2 tutorials# on my website to add a mobile phone pocket and a zippered pocket to this bag lining : #Infinite variations# Use only one fabric with contrasting topstitching to highlight the design lines or combine 2,3,4 different fabrics as you wish ! In the instructions you'll find all the information to easily personalize your Candy bag ; an illustration shows the position of each pattern piece and the fabric requirements are detailed. This way you'll know exactly in which fabric you'll need to cut each piece for your finished bag to look like the vision you had. #Instructions and pattern# Instructions for the Candy pattern are 18 pages long including 8 pages for the full scale pattern tiles. Seam allowance is included and measurements are given both in cm and inches.

Hi I'm Véronique Pinson (you can call me Véro), Sacôtin founder and designer. I'm French and after living in the US (Washington DC) and the UK (Brighton) for a while, I've settled down back in France, in Provence to be precise. I've just launch my line of Bag sewing patterns available both in English and in French. A long-time dream coming true ! #About Sacôtin bag patterns# I create bags that I would like myself and, having very eclectic taste in bags, you will find a great diversity of patterns. For me, bags are the ultimate accessory, the most enjoyable, the accessory that really shows your personality, that allows you to play with styles, to add a touch of fantasy, to have fun and treat yourself. And, because a bag is useful for carrying around all your bits and bobs, it also needs to be practical! #About Sacôtin pattern instructions# I write the instructions just as I would like to read them myself : I put myself in your shoes. I want clear, illustrated instructions that lead me step by step; thus they are something to which I pay particular attention.
