A simple attractive over the shoulder bag with two internal secure zip pockets. Carry your essentials in style with a roomy main compartment, two external slip pockets and two internal secure pockets. This pattern would suit sewers who would like to try piping and adding an internal inset zip. It also appeals to experienced bag makers who like to show case some fussy cut fabric and make to sell.
Our favourite features of this bag are the showcase pockets on the outside and secure internal inset pockets inside. This pattern involves adding inset zips and the opportunity to try using piping if you wish. Full instructions and step by step photos are included so give it a go today. We have showcased some variations you can try to make your bag more unique. We have tried a plaited handle in one of our sample bags, used less piping in another to make it more affordable.
As with all our patterns we encourage our makers to go off road, hack it, adapt it, just make it yours!
