Pattern Details

This roomy bag can hold lots of stuff - travel guides, maps, magazines... It has handy pockets for small items such as your passport, sunglasses and train tickets. It's named after Gerardus Mercator, the Flemish cartographer who in 1569 created the world map projection that became the standard for many years, and features on this bag - but of course you could use any fabric you like! Finished size: 15’’ x 11’’ x 3’’
