Pattern Details

The Helen Bag has been designed specifically to safely and securely hold an iPad and A4 documents and folders. It has a padded internal pocket to carry and protect your iPad and a roomy interior that will easily hold A4 documents, diary and planner. It has a quilted feature pocket on the front divided into two and another on the back that will take sheets of A4. As well as the interior iPad pocket it has an additional internal pocket that could be divide to hold pens, or a phone and some tissues whatever fits your need. This bag would be ideal for taking to meetings or lectures. It would suit either sex depending on the fabric choices made. The bag measures 13 1/2" wide 10" high and 3 1/2" deep. The taupe bag has a main body of cotton canvas fabric with a feature pocket, contrast piping and contrast lining. The ideal fabric for this bag is a firm woven fabric with an even weave such as cotton or cotton canvas. The feature pockets on the taupe version are from Robert Kaufman's 'Luxe' range of delicate feathers highlighted in gold, we have done the black and white version with Michael Miller's 'Gothic Freak out' fabric. The piping gives another area for contrast and detail we have used imitation leather for the black and white version and made our own from a complimentary feather design on the taupe one. If you want to give your bag a professional finish you can invest in 'bag furniture' e.g. D-rings and trigger clips and brass zips. These can give your bag that 'shop bought' look. This bag is a nice one to make, the instructions are in color and break the process down into simple steps. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 13 1/2" wide 10" high and 3 1/2" deep
