The Dawn Bag – DIGITAL SEWING PATTERN

All posts may contain affiliate links.

Briefcase meets casual crossbody bag, that is great for carrying your daily items including an iPad/tablet or Ereader.

The pattern includes a large exterior slip pocket on the front and two mini slip pockets on the back, a place to hang a charm or tassel. The inside is fully lined with a roomy interior zipper pocket, and a small interior slip pocket – the perfect size for your smaller items that tend to get lost in the bottom of larger bags.

This bag is designed to be made with vinyl and waterproof canvas, but can also be made with a heavier interfaced fabric. The boxed top corners give you a clean and beautiful top zipper with no need for zipper tabs or stops, and give the bag the perfect depth from bottom to top.

The Dawn bag measures approximately 11″ Wide X 9.5″ Tall X 3.5″ Deep.
