This bag is designed so you can throw everything in it for a day out. It’s got a slouchy, relaxed feel, perfect for the beach. Kynsa comes from the Cornish word for “first” or “initial”. This is Adam’s first fabric pattern so we thought it was a fitting name. We recommend this pattern as suitable for ambitious beginners. It doesn’t include any curves or zips, so everything is quite straight-forward. We recommend watching the video tutorial linked below if this is one of your first bags!

This is a PDF digital sewing pattern in English available for instant download. See the “DOWNLOAD INSTRUCTIONS” page for details on how to download your pattern after purchase.
