Item 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 measurements and are geared towards an intermediate quilter. Measurements are given to cut pattern pieces with a rotary cutter, ruler and mat. (Hardware Kit available at

The finished size is approximately: Width: 11” (28 cm), Height: 7” (18 cm), Depth: 3” (7.6 cm)

Average review
I liked making this project, I did not however, like the quilting of the bag. I plan to do it differently next time.
