This unique barrel bag is almost like two patterns in one. Instructions are included to make it with the side pockets, or without. This pattern is a great opportunity to improve your skills working with curves, zips and binding. There’s a detachable crossbody strap that connects to the rectangle rings and two size options for handles. You’ll love this sewing project and at the end you’ll have an incredibly unique bag that’s perfect for everyday use.
An additional short video is available showing how to add D-ring connectors to the end panels if you want to make just a crossbody strap and no handles, as shown on the grey, no pockets bag in the photos. The pattern calls for Decovil light for stabiliser. However, many of the testers used other stabilisers instead. Please see below for full details on each tester bag. The pattern does NOT include instructions for rolled handles. However, my Vekza pattern does include this option if you’re looking for an opportunity to try rolled handles.
The pattern includes step by step photo instructions to guide you through the process of making this bag. There’s also a full video tutorial that you can watch alongside the pattern. Check out the beautiful tester bags for fabric ideas and inspiration.
For the exterior fabric I recommend cotton, canvas, cork, vinyl or leather. If using cork, vinyl or leather, omit the woven \\interfacing. Your chosen fabrics should be suitable for the capabilities of your sewing machine and your sewing experience. If using a basic domestic sewing machine, I recommend using cotton or a thin canvas. For the lining fabric I recommend quilting cotton or light weight (300 denier) waterproof canvas. If using waterproof canvas, omit the interfacing.
