Item details


Stitch up your next cute handbag using this simple SEWING PATTERN.

This bag is an excellent size for the essentials and will hold a wallet, paper back book or eReader, small make-up bag, phone, water bottle, etc.

There are two roomy inset pockets with curved openings. The pockets span most of the width and about 3/4" of the height of the bag. The curved openings make it easy to slide your hand in and out.

This bag hangs on a 34" strap so for many people it will sit under the elbow and against the waist.

This project will take 4-6 hours to make for most people and is designed for someone with sewing experience making bags.

Lost files can be replaced for 30-days with proof of purchase (link to your receipt, or a copy of your email receipt). I don't sell, maintain, or store these documents indefinitely so if you lose your pattern in many cases it is irreplaceable.

If you want to keep these files indefinitely--or at least longer than your next computer crash or upgrade--the best option is to have a data backup system running, or store the files online. Storing them online can be as simple as emailing them to yourself at a gmail type account, or using a service like Drop Box or Box.net.

• Once your package arrives a refund will be submitted within 48-hours. The time it takes to actually receive the refund credit in your account can vary. Questions regarding those processing times should be directed to etsy or your bank.

Shipments within the US are sent with "Delivery Confirmation". Please let me know if you have not received your package after 2 weeks. USPS online tracking information must show the package has not been delivered in order to qualify as a lost package.
