Levi Utility Bag sewing pattern

This is the Levi Utility Bag pdf sewing pattern from the designer SWOON Sewing Patterns.

Levi is a small bag with enormous space! This bag is made of heavy duty duck cloth, with four main outer pockets and a huge main compartment. At 14″ wide, it’s great as a tool bag or project bag. It also has a very large zippered opening and is reinforced to carry heavy objects.

This bag could also be described as a duffel bag, or a duffle bag (depending where you come from), or a kitbag, or a holdall. No matter what you call it, this bag can carry it all. Going to the gym, the beach, away for a weekend? The Levi is the ideal bag for you. Not fussy and fancy, just packed with everything you need, and all the features you need in a bag too. Take it on the plane to slip under the seat in front of you!
