Pattern Details

This is a very flexible pattern. The Dakota bag is perfect for use with wheelchairs, other mobility aids and strollers. The detachable shoulder strap allows you to make a traditional messenger bag without the handles on the back, or to convert the bag from chair to shoulder carry. It is also a perfect diaper bag. The approximate finished dimensions are 17" x 13". The two gusset pockets are large enough to hold a 4" x 6" phone for easy access. The generous pockets on the exterior and interior will keep the contents secure. Make the bag any of the following ways: 1) Flap, recessed zipper, detachable shoulder strap. 2) Flap, detachable shoulder strap 3) Recessed zipper, detachable shoulder strap 4) Flap, recessed zipper, 5) Flap, handles for hanging (with or without the shoulder strap) 6) Recessed zipper closure, handles for hanging (with or without the shoulder strap)
