A blog about design, crafting and DIY featuring styleboards, tutorials, patterns, printables, one shoulder bag for school reviews, vintage, sewing, knitting and more. I love how this bag is both casual and streamlined at the same time.
It’s put together with only four pieces of fabric and should be easy enough for an advanced beginner to complete. The finished size is 27 inches tall and 35 inches around. UPDATE: PLEASE GO TO MY NEW SITE TO DOWNLOAD THE PDF PATTERN AND INSTRUCTIONS. Or, print the pattern from the tiled pdf. Arrange the pattern on your fabric. If you are short on fabric, make a seam at the top of the handle instead of placing it on the fold. 2 inch longer and stitch together.
Cut one each of bag body and bottom from fabric A and fabric B. You now have four total pieces. Pin body of fabric A to body of fabric B, right sides together, along curved edges and handle. 2 inch seam allowance, leaving sides open. Turn right side out through the handle.
You can now see the bag starting to take shape. This is a good time to press the handle of the bag. Open the bag so the wrong side is facing and the handle is in the middle. Press the seams open a few inches. Next, stitch the side seams.
