This roomy bag will show off your fabric fabric perfectly with its lovely shape and pleats. It is fully lined with a pocket for cell phone or keys and has plenty of room for a textbook, laptop or a change of clothes. The 16-page eBook sewing pattern includes detailed step by step instructions, color photographs and full-sized pattern pieces for the Showoff Bag (extended length version also included). Seam allowances are included on all pattern pieces. Note: This sewing pattern is intended for personal use only. A handmade sellers version of the pattern is available for purchase at Please be aware that the individual strip pattern pieces for the Chevron version of the bag (shown below) are not included in this pattern. To make the Chevron version, I sewed nine 3? strips of striped fabric cut on the bias together and then cut the main part of the bag out of the resulting pieced rectangle of fabric. It would be far easier just to find yourself some nice Chevron fabric though. Just sayin. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY sew a straight line backward and forward keep an even seam allowance on a curve SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Approximate finished bag dimensions, without straps: 14" tall x 16" wide (extended length pattern pieces also included)
