Pattern Details

This useful shoulder bag can be made from any firm fabric with an even weave, we have used cotton. The contrasting print can be cut from just quarter of a meter so you can splurge on a gorgeous designer fabric. Bag furniture makes the bag look more 'shop bought'. We invested in strap carriers and a magnetic popper. It measures 30cm wide by 23cm tall and has a shaped gusset to make plenty of space. This is an updated version of the previously published pattern as following feedback we have now included a zip closure. This version was featured in Sewing World Magazine (in the UK). We have given the names of the fabrics used for if you want to make the exact same bag, however the panels on this bag make it perfect for using up left over fabric, lay the fabrics next to each other to see what works and which fabrics you want to use for the feature fabric and which to use for the contrast. You could also omit the metal strap carriers and attach the straps directly to the body of the finished bag or if you wanted you could choose some beautiful bag furniture. We have used square strap carriers to attach the strap this makes for a very professional finish. There are many, many styles of bag furniture available in an array of finishes from ultra-modern to antique. As usual with our patterns the use of wadding is optional but does make for a more substantial finish. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Insert a zip. Insert piping. Although full instructions are given. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 30cm wide by 23cm tall (12" x9")
