Item details

Easy instructions to DIY purse. PDF Purse Pattern lets you Sew It Tonight! Zipper Shoulderbag. Includes paper templates.

It's easy to make this roomy zippered shoulder bag! It has long straps that make it the perfect length for tossing on your shoulder or carry as a handbag. There are two outside and two inside hidden pockets.

This pattern uses rotary cutting and step-by-step assembly to make it EASY! It is in English with over 70 color photos and 14 pages of step-by-step instructions. Plus paper pattern pieces if you're rather pin and cut!

Please note: this pattern does not tell you how to use jeans to make a purse but I have a free tutorial on my blog:

The finished size of this purse is 12” wide (32 cm) x 5” deep (12 cm) at the bottom, with a 15.5” zippered opening (39 cm). It’s 9.5” tall (24 cm).

Really easy to follow. Fabric glue did not work so I used shoe goo instead. I made the straps longer.
