Is this sewing pattern suitable for me ?

ABSOLUTELY ! this pattern is suitable for an intermediate sewer upwards you only need to be able to sew in a straight line, and a gentle curve, and will need to insert a zip , the instructions are easy to follow step by step with colour photographs

I would allow three hours if you are an inexperienced sewer to allow time for reading the instructions and sewing .

To create the denim shoulder bag for yourself you will need the following supplies
Coordinating thread.

Machine needles suitable for denim , I used size 16

Scissors / rotary cutter

Pins, pencil or tailors chalk


Sewing machine zipper foot

Metal Zip 15 inch long (length of teeth) total zip length 16 inches.

A large pair of mens jeans, or denim fabric, or you could use upholstery weight fabric
