Pattern Details

This bag really is a simple, beautiful, solution to carrying what you need for summer, school, vacations, babies, you name it! It fits comfortably across your body or just over your shoulder to keep your hands free. I love the simplicity of the design. A beginner sewist can make this bag! They are inexpensive with only the cost of the fabrics, no fancy hardware or expensive interfacings needed to make this one. This could easily be made from another item you may no longer want, such as a skirt, just cut out the pattern pieces from it and you have made something useful out of an item you would have otherwise discarded. Or scout your way through your local thrift shop to get the fabric for pennies. I especially love using this bag at theme parks/water parks. It is easy to carry a little or a lot, and carry it comfortably, while keeping my arms and hands free for other tasks. The sewing pattern consists of color photographs and graphics that accompany verbal descriptions of each step. There are sewing tips along the way and instructions for adding pockets, and key straps. This bag is fully reversible too! You can complete this bag in less than two hours. These would make great gifts for your friends too, so let's get sewing! PDF now has full size pattern pieces! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Just be familiar with your sewing machine. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 16" wide x 17" high with a strap that has a 17" drop opening

I love to make things that I like to use, so I have a wide variety of patterns as a result of that. I have sewn for more years than I care to admit to...let's just say, for decades. I enjoy making patterns and sharing them with others. I try very hard to make them as easy to understand as I can. It is my hope that this is a way of helping others make things they like to use too.Please contact me if you have any questions about your pattern, I am happy to help. Thank you!
