A great bag pattern suitable for beginners or for a gift as they come beautifully packaged. The samples in the pictures are made from Dry Oilskin, although you can use any sturdy cotton fabric or both the outer fabric and inner lining.

All hardware for this pattern can be found in the haberdashery section of the website under fastenings.

When inserting the rivets we recommend using a very solid surface like a cement floor so there is no movement.

Finished measurements length 43cm, width 47cm.

    I have made 5 of these bags ! They are great to make as gifts, you can add an extra pocket in front and get creative mixing colours of the outer fabric and the lining.
    Instructions are clear and easy to follow.

    The bag is a great size for your laptop and some extra stationary or perfect to throw some unexpected shopping in when you are out and about.
