We think you will simply love how quickly and simply this pattern comes together and gives you a gorgeous fashionable bag to carry all season long. The Bucket bag is a gorgeous looking and professionally made bag without all the fussy details. It’s casual, fun, and easy to sling over your shoulder or wear as a cross body bag.
You’ll love the choices you can make for the materials, including the strap, the toggle, the drawstring and of course the fabrics.
The Bucket Bag pattern uses a 1/2 yard of fabric for the exterior (preferably canvas or decor weight) and less than a 1/2 yard for the lining. It features a leather handle strap (optional but worth it), drawstring through eyelets and roomy interior pockets.
The very helpful designer (Gingercake Patterns) has made a free tutorial to show you how to add 2 handles to the bag if you prefer this instead of the single strap. This is really useful addition when you purchase the pattern, which you can do by clicking on the link below.
When finished the bag measures approximately 11’’ by 10” by 8”.
This Purchase Includes:
- Full size pattern to print out AND a cheat sheet with measurements only if you prefer not to print
- 10 pages of Easy-To-Read Instructions
- Full color images of every step are included to make your project a success!
