A classic bag everyone needs in their wardrobe. A versatile design which works well with a combination of different fabrics. We love the optional clip-on short carrying handle which converts this crossbody or shoulder bag into a snazzy handbag.
The Serena Saddle Bag is a classic, D-shape saddle bag with a modern twist! Aimed at the confident beginner, this bag pattern will teach you a range of useful bag-making techniques, with plenty of scope to add your own style. The optional piping around the pretty shape of the flap emphasises the cool curves of this classy purse.
Padded all around with defined curves, this bag features piping on the flap, a zipped inner pocket, an inner slip pocket, magnetic snap closure, an adjustable and detachable shoulder strap, plus optional clip-on carry handle.
When you have finished making your own Serena Saddle Bag it will measure approximately 10½” (27 cm) wide by 7″ (18 cm) tall by 3″ (8 cm) deep.
The Serena Saddle Bag is perfect for the intermediate sewer or confident beginner.
The Serena saddle bag works well in a medium weight quilting cotton, linen, canvas, vinyl, cork, denim, laminated or coated cottons. You can choose one main fabric, or a combination of fabrics e.g. linen with a vinyl gusset or all vinyl with a fabric flap (omit the interfacing if working with thicker outer fabrics).
This is a detailed sewing pattern which contains 23 pages of step-by-step instructions, along with 65 colour photos, making it perfect for the visual learner.
