Poppy Shoulder Bag

All posts may contain affiliate links.


A great every day shoulder bag to sew, with feature piping, a zipper top closure and a flap that closes with a magnetic snap.


This bag can be made from any firm fabric with an even weave; we used cotton. The contrasting feature print can be cut from just quarter of a meter so you can splurge on a gorgeous designer fabric and balance it against a solid color to really make it pop.
The panels on this bag make it perfect for using up leftover fabric, You can omit the metal strap carriers and attach the straps directly to the body of the bag or you could choose some beautiful bag hardware.
We have used square strap carriers to attach the strap which gives a professional finish.
As usual with our patterns the use of wadding is optional but does make for a more substantial finish.
