Makayla Bag FREE sewing pattern (2 sizes + video)

The Makayla Bag comes together quickly, can be done as a casual every day bag or a classy number for special occasions. You can dress it up or down, modify it, make it a crossbody by making a crossbody strap instead or add some bling with some chain. You can add to it, like adding a slip pocket inside, or make it a lightning fast sew by using metal connectors instead of the sewn connectors. She will be cute either way!
