Pattern Details

Lip stick. Check. Cell phone. Check. Ready for a night on the town or fun shopping spree? Yes! But what you are NOT ready for is some culprit just waiting to steal your valued possessions from your easy to reach hand bag. Introducing Pyck-Me-Not! This gorgeous tear drop shaped bag is just the ticket when you need mobility but still desire a chic bag to complement your attire. Whether it’s a night out to the theatre, a trek across town on the subway or a shopping adventure, with Pyck-Me-Not, your bag is safe and secure and so are your possessions. Wear it underneath your evening jacket and it will comfortably rest at your side, out of view from would be pick-pockets. Or, bring it to the front of your body for hands-free, secure shopping! The adjustable cross body strap will ensure it fits for all heights and sizes. And while small in dimensions (8”x6”), you’ll be able to carry your basic necessities and then some. This is an intermediate skilled sewing project, best suited for someone who has made a few bags previously. But if you have patience and can follow precise instructions, this bag can really be made by anyone. Suggested fabrics for the exterior are vinyl, micro suede, cork and quilted cotton. For the interior we suggest cotton. As always, a complementary video has been made for Pyck-Me-Not with a bonus video on how to make Snappy Straps! Available in 3 sizes: 8" x 6" - 9" x 7" and 10" x 8" Pick up your Pyck-Me-Not today and let the hands-free fun begin! (Well, you can’t sew hands-free, but once the bag is made, you are set)! Extra: You can now buy acrylic templates for this pattern in the Tops and Bobbins shop. In the set are all 3 sizes of this pattern. All marks have been made on the template and will make your sewing life easy. Buy your own templates here: You will need the pattern to make the bag. Feel free to sell your bags made with my patterns.

Hello and welcome! My name is Anne Verberckmoes, the woman, pattern designer and fearless YouTube publisher behind Serial Bagmakers. Like you, I have a serious bag making passion. I live it, dream it, and having found a few threads in my plate on occasion, you might say I eat it! My true passion stems from the ability to transfer my thoughts and ideas onto paper, and then a pattern and then the final icing on the cake -- to see my patterns come to life by people all over the world. I am humbled each time I see one of my patterns sewn into someone’s own beautiful creation, with their own unique touches. I hope you will share your masterpieces with me on my Facebook page: Pattern drafting also feeds another passion of mine which is teaching. I understand that many of you are visual learners and so I take great pride in offering supporting videos for most of my patterns, at no extra charge. Thank you for your confidence in me. For taking the leap of faith in one of my patterns that are very near and dear to my heart. Anne
