Here’s another fabulous FREE sewing pattern from an amazing designer – Vicky Myers Creations. She creates some fabulous patterns. And just look at these great bags you can sew with her free pattern!
This is the Versatile Project Bag pdf sewing pattern that is FREE! This bag has been made as the perfect bag for taking craft projects out and about with you.
This project bag has a whole lot of options and is actually an easy bag to make. It looks more difficult because the designer has given you lots of options. It’s easy to change the feel of the bag by simply tweaking the handles, closure, or external fabrics.
When you have finished making yourself one of these Versatile Project Bags it will measure approximately 8″ wide at the base, 5″ deep, and is 7 1/2″ tall.
The designer, in the pictures shown here, made three versions of the Versatile Project Bag from a canvas weight fabric with woven iron-on interfacing as a starting base for adding shape to the bag. The bag details for each of the three versions are as follows:
- Bag A (with brown handles in the pictures) – Nice and simple, leather handles and button closure. This has Annies Soft and Stable as a stabilizer which gives the bag great form.
- Bag B (with cream handles in the pictures) – Made with an external pocket, cream corded handles made with webbing, and magnetic snap closure. Made with iron-on interfacing and Decovil I.
- Bag C (with dark handles in the pictures) – Made with two contrasting fabrics, padded handles, and a top closure zipper. Made with fusible fleece.
So you’ve now got to decide which bag you’ll make. Do you make it with one fabric or two for the outer bag? Do you have an external pocket or not? And what type of handle do you have, leather, fabric, or webbed?
This bag doesn’t need a printed pattern. Cutting directions are provided so you can cut the fabric directly, or use the measurements to draw up your own paper pattern pieces and use those to cut your fabric. We recommend using a clear quilting ruler and rotary cutter to make it easy to get your pieces the correct size and properly squared up.
