Product Overview

This is a PDF Pattern in English available for instant download. See the "HOW TO DOWNLOAD PATTERNS" page for details on how to download your pattern after purchase. Click on the images above to zoom in.

This pattern includes the drawstring and zip top versions.
The Deyjon is a great sized bucket bag. It's roomy inside without feeling like you're carrying the world with you. It features two exterior zip pockets which are ideal for holding your keys, phone or sunglasses. The interior has a zipper pocket and slip pocket.

The pattern provides two options for the top closure: a drawstring or a recessed zipper panel. The two versions give the bag such a different look, it’s almost as if you’re getting two patterns in one! The pattern is ideal for canvas, cork, vinyl or leather. You can also make it using cotton but I'd recommend adding fleece for stability.

There is no binding used in this pattern and the lining is birthed and then sewn up through a pocket to give a neat lining.


Options: Drawstring or zip top closure

Finished size: 12 1/2" tall x 10" wide x 5 1/2" deep.

Skill level: Ambitious beginner
