Item details

The Out & About Bag sewing pattern includes PDF pattern files for both letter size paper and A4 paper.

One summer my sewing course ladies asked me to do household items like bags, purses, peg bags and the like. So I went to work and created this super little tote handbag.
This tote is super easy, has an on trend shape, recessed zip, side pockets and if you like even a front welt pocket.

You can make this pattern with feature strips across the front and back for Camper Vans, Beach Hut theme or anything else that you fancy designing. You could also do plain strips or appliqué a name onto it. I still had so many ideas, but 20 bags later I gave it a rest and now leave it up to you to come up with something spectacular!

Step by step video and photo instructions making sewing more enjoyable and even a beginner can now sew like a professional.

The playlist on You Tube is a good place to start and see if this pattern is for you:
