This sewing pattern is ideal for ambitious beginners, or experienced sewists who want to try their first big bag. It’s firm and structured with a spacious, pocket free interior. It includes exterior zip and slip pockets for quick and easy access to your phone or keys, and closes with two magnetic snaps at the top. The base is constructed using box corners and the bag is finished with a drop-in lining. This is my first pattern to use a drop-in lining but I’ve got a great method to show you, that I think you’ll love.

The pattern calls for Decovil light stabiliser. However, many of the testers substituted this with foam or other stabilisers.

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.
