Pattern Details

The Manhattan Bag pattern includes instructions for a gorgeous shoulder bag in 2 sizes (Mamma & Miss), as well as additional instructions for a"Removable Case" for eyeglasses, sunglasses, or other items. The Manhattan is extremely fun to make and very unique, because the front flap actually zips open along it's edge! Why? So you can put cool stuff in it!! I have included instructions for the aforementioned "Removable Case" and this actually sticks into the flap with (optional) velcro and is..... wait for it..... removable!! This case is perfect for your glasses or sunglasses. Here's what YOU can make! Miss Size: Front Exterior Pocket Interior Slip Pocket Shoulder strap/Optional Adjustable cross body strap Front Flap that zips open, to turn into a pocket of it's own Mamma Size: Rear exterior zipper pocket Large front exterior pocket Large interior slip pocket Shoulder strap/Optional Adjustable cross body strap Front Flap that zips open, to turn into a pocket of it's own. Velcro attachments to attach items, such as the Removable Case and Manhattan Zippered Case. Pattern instructions are in BOTH Imperial and Metric.
