This is an ideal project for using up that special scrap of left-over fabric with its front feature panel. We love how curvy the bag is, with the piping really emphasising the great shape.

Description

This is an easy make and can be made with or without piping and wadding to suit your own taste. It is a handy size shoulder bag with two internal pockets one with zip pockets to keep your purse or phone safe. It has a flap secured by a magnetic snap plus a zip across the main bag opening for extra security.

This is an ideal project for using up that special scrap of left-over fabric with its front feature panel. It has three different fabrics; a main, a feature and a lining.

Square strap carriers were used to attach the strap which gives a professional finish. There are many styles of bag furniture available in an array of finishes from ultra-modern to antique.

As usual with this designers patterns, the use of wadding is optional but does make for a more substantial finish. This example was made using a combination of leatherette and cotton woven fabrics.
