Megan Shoulder Bag sewing pattern

This is the Megan Shoulder Bag sewing pattern. It’s an ideal project for using up that special scrap of left-over fabric with its front feature panel. It has three different fabrics; a main, a feature, and a lining. We love how curvy the bag is, with the piping really emphasizing the great shape.

This is an easy make and can be made with or without piping and wadding to suit your own taste. It’s a handy size shoulder bag with two internal pockets, one being a zipper pocket to keep your purse or phone safe. It has a flap secured by a magnetic snap plus a zip across the main bag opening for extra security.

Square strap carriers were used to attach the strap which gives the bag a professional finish. There are many styles of bag furniture available in an array of finishes from ultra-modern to antique.

As usual with this designer’s patterns, the use of wadding is optional but does make for a more substantial finish. This example was made using a combination of leatherette and cotton woven fabrics.

Sizing info:
When you have finished making yourself a Megan Shoulder Bag it will measure approximately 12″ (30 cm) wide by 9″ (23 cm) tall.

Skill level:
The designer rates her project as suitable for an intermediate sewer. You will need to be able to insert a zip and insert piping. Full instructions are given.
