Two sizes, quick make, stylish results. Makayla is my fourth pattern and the first free one. She is meant to be a quick sew with stylish results. She comes in two sizes, medium and small.

The Makayla Bag comes together quickly, can be done as a casual every day bag or a classy number for special occasions.

You can dress it up or down, modify it, make it a crossbody by making a crossbody strap instead or add some bling with some chain.
You can add to it, like adding a slip pocket inside, or make it a lightning fast sew by using metal connectors instead of the sewn connectors. She will be cute either way!
