This sewing pattern comes together really quickly. I’ve rated it as intermediate as it involves sewing curves, but there’s no reason an ambitious beginner can’t give it a try!
It’s firm and structured with a built-in wallet inside and a stretchy mesh pocket which is really handy for holding your phone. The bag is finished with binding on the inside. Binding is a great way to give a bag structure, it creates a sort of “skeleton” inside the bag which helps it keep its shape.
7″ high x 9 1/2″ wide x 4″ deep
