Pattern Details

The Spring Sling bag is a quilted, barrel shaped bag, that will appeal to both traditional & modern quilters, and bag makers alike. This will look wonderful either in bright spring colours, or rich jewel tones with a dark main fabric. It's easy, fun, and very fast to make up. The finished bag will have a zipper pocket, that creates a second "divider pocket", bag straps attached through grommets, and an adjustable cross-body strap. This pattern is suitable for an intermediate to advanced sewer. Pattern instructions are provided in both imperial and metric. MATERIALS: Fabric and Interfacing: 1 Yd.
