A pattern for a simple sling bag that can be whipped up in a very short amount of time. Pattern Sizing:
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, but I made the straps about 6" longer so it could be worn cross body. I also added fusible fleece interfacing for a more structured bag.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
This is an incredibly simple bag to whip up. It's the perfect size for a sleepover bag, a beach bag, etc. I can easily see making lots of these as gifts.
I used a home decor weight fabric with a cotton quilting lining for this particular bag. Next one will be cotton quilting batik.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Added interfacing and made the straps longer.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes! It's a very simple pattern, easy to customize and so worth the $6 not to have to fiddle with making it up myself.
