This pattern has A VIDEO TUTORIAL and a SEWING INSTRUCTIONS BOOKLET. It is best to look through both the video tutorial and the sewing instructions before making this project.

Total length of this tutorial is about one(1) hour long, and it has been divided into seven(7) parts so you can watch them in bits. The video tutorial is captioned in ENGLISH, and can be found on our YouTube channel through this link:

  • Suggested Fabric for the Exterior: it is best to use a light-weight fabric for this project, or with little mix of heavy fabrics such as vinyl, leather, or denim, etc.
  • Suggesting Lining for the Interior: light weight fabric. The lighter the interior lining, the easier it will be for your machine to stitch.
  • Suggested Interfacing: If your main fabric is too soft, you can add light interfacing to give the bag some structure. Depending on your fabric choice, some parts of the bag or all of it may need to be interfaced. A separate pattern file for all interfacing has also been included in your purchase in case your fabric choice calls for interfacing.
  • Closure: snap buttons/utility snaps/ Kam Snaps or magnetic snaps.
