This wonderful designer makes such easily recognisable bags and has her own unique brand of retro styled patterns that we simply adore. This 1940s inspired bag is called the “Kitchen Garden Bag” and as the designer says “It combines practicality and prettiness”.
The Kitchen Garden Bag has the following features:
- A deep pleated front pocket
- A long tab flap
- It’s finished with one or two vintage buttons
- It’s constructed flat
- The pattern also has a template for an interior zip pocket.
When you purchase the digital pattern it has 8 pages including photographs, detailed instructions and illustrations, plus 8 pages of full-sized pattern templates which you must print on letter (A4) paper and cut out. Many of the pieces are too big to fit on one sheet so you will have to tape them together after you have cut them out. Instructions for this are clear though.
The finished Kitchen Garden Bag measures approximately 13” (33cm) tall by 16” (41cm) wide excluding the handles.
As with all patterns and bags from Charlie’s Aunt designs, you can use a wide range of fabrics to create your bag. It works well with thicker fabrics such as wood, tweed, home decor fabrics, as well as your favorite cottons such as the grey one with the leaf pattern in the top picture.
