Convertible Tote or Shoulder Bag

Sewing pattern for a convertible bag, that goes from fold over purse, to shoulder bag to full height tote. Really smart pattern.Any bag that has several different looks in a single pattern is a winner with us, so that’s why we love this convertible tote or shoulder bag from Studio Cherie.  Her newest bag is as flexible as you are. Looks great folded over on your shoulder, or open it up to use as a full-size tote.
