Pattern Details

32 page full color tutorial with photos 17 pages of computer generated pattern pieces (8 pattern pieces total, must be printed and taped together) Detailed construction and zipper instructions I originally designed it to be a theme-park or train bag. I specifically made it for the auto show. You know, one of those carry everything you need for the whole day kind of things. Your water bottle, jacket, a book... things you may not need in your every day purse but when taking an extra tote to leave in the car isn't an option. I discovered, that even half-full, I totally use this bag as an every day purse! It's big but it's not *too big* meaning it's about messenger bag size. Whether I have it stuffed (and you can really stuff it!) or not, it's perfect! Also, I use this as my "personal item" for the plane and since it is still a purse! It features a back zipper (fully lined) and a top, zippered gusset. The back zipper is perfect for boarding passes, an Essential Wristlet, an iPad, a Kindle - anything you want very accessible but completely secure. The front slip pockets are specifically designed to keep phone and keys accessible. The inside features the zippered gusset and a full length pocket on one side. I've left the other side without a pocket you so you can customize it! I've given extra structure to the bottom of the bag and included instructions for an optional bag base sleeve. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY How to use your sewing machine: How to change your stitch length, seam allowances, etc. It's best if you've made a bag, any bag, before. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 16" wide at widest point, 4" deep on the bottom, 10" tall 12" wide and 2.5" deep at top with a 30" to 56" adjustable strap This bag has a zipper closure, a zippered back pocket, a divided outside pocket and a divided inside pocket. Fits an iPad in the back pocket!
