A classy purse with a short strap that can be carried as a handbag, or looks cute on your shoulder with the bag comfortably under your arm.
This is the totally trendy Baguette Bag. The short straps that are a feature of the bag make you carry it as if it was a french baguette! Sling the cute strap over your shoulder and the bag sits comfortably under your arm.
If you love fashion and trends you need this pattern, and if you are a beginner sewer, then even better as this pattern is suitable for you.
The designer used faux leather in her bag (the one with zebra print) but it works well in canvas, cork, denim, laminated or coated cotton, quilted cotton. If you are going to use any of those lighter fabrics than vinyl you should use appropriate interfacing to give the bag some good body and help it keep its shape.
The bag features an internal slip pocket and an external back zipper pocket.
If you are a confident beginner you can tackle this project. Experience sewing zippers would be handy.
When you have finished making your own Baguette Bag it will measure approximately 6 3/4” (17 cm) tall by 13” (32 cm) wide by 2’’ (5 cm) deep.
The pattern contains instructions describing each step, detailed with clear photos and graphics that make it super easy to follow. There are accurate actual size patterns of all pieces of the bag. Measurements are in both inches and centimetres. Available in A4 size paper and letter size paper.
