Item details

Are you like me? You look at something and think wow, that’s pretty but I bet I could make that. Now you can!

The Central Park Sling Bag is my newest pattern and perfect for just about anyone! It's cross-body style and long adjustable strap make it a great "hands-free" style bag.

The outside of this sling bag has an open pocket & zippered pocket as well. Inside there's another zip pocket. The top has a zipper to keep everything safe inside. Don't worry about all the zippers though - my easy tutorials will make adding zippers a snap!

Think GREEN! Think INSTANT!!

Average review
Fantastic, easy-to-follow pattern! I skipped the outside zipper for this one, as I wasn't sure how the laminated fabric would behave. Everything worked beautifully! Choosing the hardware for this one was fun and I can see lots of variety in that for future projects. Thanks Jessica!

well described instructions, but the design of the bag is too tight. the top needs to be wider or the bag needs to be shorter in depth. arrived as a download so it was "right on time".
