Description

The Deyjon is a great sized bucket bag. It holds loads of stuff inside but it doesn’t feel like you’re carrying the world with you. It features two exterior zip pockets which are ideal for holding your keys, phone or sunglasses. The interior has a zipper pocket and a slip pocket.

The pattern provides two options for the top closure. You can choose between a draw-string and a recessed zipper panel. They look so different that it’s almost like getting two patterns in one!

There is no binding used in this pattern and the lining is ‘birthed’ and then sewn up through a pocket to give a neat lining.

Video tutorial too
