Here’s the Sorbet Bag sewing pattern. It’s a smart curved purse to carry as a shoulder or crossbody bag. The piping echos the lovely shape. A full video tutorial is included along with written instructions.
This beautiful bag is styled with slimline piping that defines the curved form of the exterior and accentuates the well-proportioned flap.
The interior is fully lined and features a zip pocket and slip pocket, both of which are curved to reflect the shape of the bag’s body and to maximise the capacity and usefulness of the pockets. The bag fastens easily with a simple magnetic clasp, whilst the strap is fully extendable meaning it can be worn as both a shoulder and a cross-body bag.
