The Sweet Sunday Bag is a sewing pattern for a small, boxy, two-handled bag, perfect for toting around your Sunday paraphernalia. But feel free to use it any day of the week! It is large enough for most bibles and scripture sets, with extra room for a hymnal, study book, notebooks, etc. This bag makes a great little tote for a child or grown-up. There are two pockets on the outside and also two inside compartments that you can customize to your preferred size.

The pattern has three variations: 1. an open tote, 2. flap closure, and 3. zipper closure, plus each variation can be made with a ruffled side.
