Enjoy a quick preview of the Kindred Bag in the video below.

This pattern comes with a full video step by step tutorial included.

Sizing info:
The Kindred bag can be made up into three different sizes:
The Small Size Kindred bag with slim side panels has finished dimensions of H 8 1/2” x W6” x D2 1/4” (21.6cm x 15.25cm x 5.7cm) this is the smallest of the bags, and is rather slim!
The Small Size Kindred bag with wide side panels this a roomier bag inside and out with finished dimensions of H 8 1/2” x W 6” x D 3”(21.6cm x 15.25cm x7.6cm)
And the Large Kindred Bag has plenty of room with finished dimensions of H12”x W 8 1/2” x D3” (30.5cm x 21.6cm x 7.6cm).

Skill level:
The bag featured in this pattern was made on a domestic sewing machine, and whilst both the pattern and video comprise detailed step-by-step instructions to guide you through the entire making process, this pattern is intended for users who are competent using their sewing machine, and have some basic knowledge of sewing terminology.
Also note that when making up the small slim version of the Kindred Bag, handling the slim side and zip panels calls for absolute precision and accuracy with little room for error. This can be considered a challenging sew, and therefore is most suitable for experienced, confident sewists.

The pattern:
Includes two pattern files, one main file containing 28 pages of step-by-step instructions, and colour photographs alongside pattern pieces for the two smaller versions of the bag.
The second file includes pattern pieces and instructions to use when making up the larger bag.
The instructions are organised into chapters and are clearly set out to make it easy to follow. Each chapter indicates the respective timing within the video tutorial.
