Do you have a very special fabric you’ve been keeping or a fabric with a large scale print that just doesn’t seem to fit well on any of your existing bag patterns? Then Nelly might be just what you are looking for.
With a striking central panel, there is room to show off your favorite fabrics without overwhelming the entire bag with a large scale print. Mix a solid with a featured fabric for a stunning look.
This bag has plenty of pocket options including an unusual zipper pocket on the outside and a hidden pocket too – which is optional. The bag can be made with or without the concealed compartment.
