This design grew out of my experience making many purses, bags and totes designed by others. I wanted a stylish every-day bag that didn’t have a lot of complicated hardware, closures or heavy structure; one that could accommodate a few extra things that I’d need for traveling or hold a few purchases made throughout the day. It is the perfect pattern for a sewist looking to learn new bag-making skills. The bag is constructed from two outer fabrics; pair a few cotton canvas or home-décor print on the upper level with cork, waved canvas, lightweight leather or vinyl on the lower level.
Skills to learn; zipper window, sewing with heavy materials like cork, leather, waxed canvas or vinyl, installing rivets and magnetic snaps, top-stitching, boxing corners.
