Pattern Details

Welcome to our brand new shop and thanks for checking out our very first sewing pattern! Megan W designed this little bag in 2008 for a customer who wanted a mini purse to carry her cell phone, credit cards and few other essentials. It became her best-selling item on Etsy, and many customers requested the pattern so they could make their own -- well, it's finally here! "The Minimalist" is perfect for those times when you just need to carry the essentials, but don't be deceived by its size - you can fit quite a bit in this little bag! Whether you're running errands, going to a sporting event, or hitting the town, you can customize it for your daily needs. With three separate compartments and two strap options, it's super versatile. Keep your cell phone in the front slip pocket for quick, easy access. Stash credit cards, cash, business cards, even a passport in the main zippered compartment or in the zippered pocket on the back of the bag. That pocket has a gusset, enabling it to expand to fit a whole stack of credit cards. Easily clip your keyring onto one of the bolt snaps and you're ready to go! Wanna go hands-fee? Trade out the short strap for the long one (with adjustable slider) and wear it cross-body. This pattern includes 9 pages of clear, thorough instructions and 35 color photos to help you along the way. Printable on 8-1/2" by 11" paper. Once you purchase the listing, you'll be given instructions on how to download the pattern immediately.

Studio M Squared is a collaboration of patterns and designs created by Megan Whitney and Meg Sawyer. Megan is a mom of 3 and former civil engineer, now pursuing her passion as the owner of a sewing studio called Urban Sewciety in Westfield, NJ. Meg is earning an advanced degree in family consumer science education while she teaches sewing classes all over NJ and does tons of quilting projects. Both M's also own Etsy shops, where they sell their own handmade goods. The two overachievers met in 2015 and in a few short months had created a new brand, Studio M Squared. Megan and Meg both desired to create a line of modern sewing patterns based upon their own designs and a collaboration was born. Our sewing patterns contain thorough, easy-to-read instructions and plenty of color photos to help you alone the way. We are committed to helping you enjoy the process of creating fun and useful products, as we believe that sewing is just as much about the process as it is the outcome. All of our patterns are available for immediate download in PDF format. And, since we've already found the perfect "extras" you will need for each pattern (hardware, interfacing, notions, etc.,) we have created kits that are also available for purchase. You'll save tons of time and money by not having to search for items from different shops and pay individual shipping charges for them. You're welcome! Thanks for visiting our brand new shop - check back often for new designs. Don't forget to like us on Facebook, and follow us on Instagram. We'd love to hear your comment and see finished pictures of your creations, so please send them or tag us in them! Happy sewing!
