rics! Try your hand at using a bit of purse hardware, including your choice of a magnetic snap or twist lock.Seam allowance varies and will be noted in each step.
All pattern pieces include the seam allowance. Please read all instructions before beginning.

CUTTING INSTRUCTIONS
Please cut your fabric pieces in the order listed, so that you will have plenty of fabric for the bag. When printing
pattern pieces, always make sure your printer is set to scaling at ‘none’ or ‘actual size’ so pieces print at correct size.
IMPORTANT: Measure the tester 1” or 4cm square to make sure that your pattern pieces printed at the correct size.
Helpful Hint: Feel free to use post-it notes to label your cut fabric pieces and easily stay organized. If you plan to quilt your exterior
pieces to interfacing, I recommend rough-cutting them approximately 1” larger to account for shrinkage when machine quilting.
Cut each from Exterior Fabric and Shape Flex (omit Shape Flex if using cork or leather):
(2) Strap, 30-1/4” x 4”; piece straps using 1/4” seam allowance along the short end. Use the 60” piece to cut from Shape Flex
(if using cork or leather and 2 layers of strap will suffice, instead cut one 54” x 2”; omit Shape Flex)
(4) Tab, 4” x 1-1/2”
(if using cork or lea
ther, cut the Tabs to 3-1/2” x 1” instead)
Cut each from Exterior Fabric, Lining Fabric, Foam Interfacing, and Shape Flex:
(2) Main Panel, using the Main Panel pattern piece for your chosen size, cut on the fold
(1) Flap, using the Flap pattern piece for your chosen size, cut on the fold
Cut each from Lining Fabric:
(1) Pocket, 5” x 10-1/2”
1.
Place the fusible (tack

y) side of the Shape Flex against the wrong side of the Strap. Fuse according to manufacturer
instructions. Repeat for the Tabs, Lining Main Panels, and Lining Flap.
Helpful Hint: To fuse Shape Flex, first place the Lining Bottom face down, followed by the interfacing (tacky side down), then my
pressing cloth. I lightly spritz the pressing cloth with water, then iron, overlapping each area, for approximately 10 seconds on
each spot. When finished, it should be firmly attached to your fabric.
2.
Place the Ex

terior Main Panel with the wrong side of the fabric against the foam interfacing. Pin in place. Baste
Panel using a 1/8” (3mm) seam allowance. Repeat for the remaining Exterior Main Panel and Exterior Flap.
Helpful Hint: I like to gently pull my fabric taut as I am basting it to the foam interfacing for a tight, crisp finish. If you would like,
machine quilt the foam interfacing pieces at this time; if you rough-cut, cut to the final size in the cutting instructions.
I also recommend cutting these scraps of interfacing to be used later on in the pattern:
-For magnetic snap - 1” square of Peltex or foam interfacing
-For twist lock - 1” square of Peltex or foam interfacing, 2” square of Shape Flex interfacing
ATTACH THE INTERFACING

MAKE THE LINING POCKET
3. Bring the Pocket right sides together so that both
short ends meet . Sew the sides and the top edge using 1/4”
seam allowance, leaving a 3” opening centered along the top
edge. Clip the corners, then turn right side out and press. Also
press the opening toward the wrong side by 1/4”.
4. Topstitch the edge of the Pocket with the opening
using 1/8” seam allo wance.
5. Place the Pocket, centered, on one Lining Main Panel.
To find the c enter, finger press the pocket and make a crease.
Do the same for the Lining Main Panel. Align the creases.
You will align the Pocket using these measurements:
-size small - 2-3/4” do

wn from the top edge of the
Lining Main Panel
-size large - 3-1/2”

down from the top edge of the
Lining Main Panel
6. Pin the Pocket in place. Sew the sides and bottom of
the pocket using 1/8” seam allo wance.
Backstitch all seams. Steps for either size will be the same unless otherwise noted. Photos show size Large.

7. Cut the dart out from your paper pattern piece
(I suggest leaving a small bit of paper a t the top of the dart, to
keep the top of the paper from spreading apart).
Trasfer the dart placement to both halves of all Exterior Main
Panels and Lining Main Panels. Also use the pattern piece
to draw a line down the center. All markings will be on the
wrong side of the fabric.
8.
Starting with one Lining M

ain Panel, pinch the dart
so that the fabric is right sides together. Make sure both ‘legs’
of the dart are aligned. Pin in place. Sew directly on top of the
line. Trim the seam to 1/4”.
Repeat this step for all darts on all Lining Main Panels and
Exterior Main Panels.
You will press the seams on the Exterior pieces toward the
center of the fabric panel. You will press the seams on all
Lining pieces toward the side edge of the fabric panel.
MAKE THE DARTS
9. If using the magnetic snap closure, for this step
only measure and make a mar k centered and 1” up from the
bottom curved edge of the Lining Flap; install the male half of
the magnetic snap over the mark that you made using manu-
facturer instructions (before opening the prongs of the snap
outward, cut slits in a square of 1” Peltex or foam using prongs
for placement; slide the Peltex/foam onto the wrong side of
the fabric, prongs through, then open the prongs outward).
MAKE THE FLAP
10. Sew the Exterior Flap and Lining Flap right sides to-
gether using a 1/4” (6mm) seam allo wance. Leave a 5” open-
ing centered along the straight edge of the Flap. Notch
the curved edge and clip the corners, being careful not to cut
into your stitching. Turn the flap right side out and press, also
pressing the opening toward the wrong side by 1/4”. Use Won-
der Clips to hold the pressed-under edge for now.
Topstitch the sides and bottom of the Flap using a scant 1/4”
seam allowance (the straight edge will be left unsewn).

11. If using the twist lock closure, unscrew the twist lock
then take the flat o val piece from the twist lock and the
completed Flap. Draw a dot that is centered and up 1” (2.5cm)
from the bottom of the Flap. Place the oval piece centered
over that dot. Draw around the center of the oval; also mark
where the screws are.
13.
On one Exter

ior Main Panel, draw a dot that is cen-
tered and down (small - down 1-3/8”, large - down 3”) from
the top edge. Place the locking piece from the twist lock cen-
tered over that dot. Draw 2 lines to mark the prong placement
of the locking piece.
Alternately, if using magnetic snap, mark prong placement for
the remaining half of the magnetic snap.
Cut small slits along the two lines on the bag front. I like to
follow this up with a dab of seam sealant. Insert the prongs of
the locking piece followed by a 1” square of Peltex/foam 12.
For twist lo

ck only, cut along the oval that you just
drew (you will be cutting through both exterior and lining
fabrics). Install using manufacturer instructions (my twist lock
had screws; I removed the screws with a screwdriver, made
holes with a small hole punch where the screw openings
were, put a dab of fabric glue on the front and back pieces,
then replaced the lock and installed the screws).
Helpful Hint: Before proceeding, examine your twist lock to see
how it needs to be installed. There are several different kinds of
twist locks available, and some use screws and some use prongs.
You may need to adjust installation based on the kind of twist
lock that you have.
OR magnetic snap through the right side of the bag front. If your twist lock came with a metal washer, the washer should
go on last. Open the prongs inward, then fuse a scrap of Shape Flex to the back over the prongs. (twist lock is pictured)
SEW THE BODY OF THE BAG
14. Place the Flap against the Exterior Main Panel (without
the twist lock/mag netic snap). The lining side of the Flap will
be against the Main Panel. The straight edge of the Flap will be
1-1/4” lower for size large (1-1/2” lower for size small) than the
top edge of the Main Panel (I drew a line with chalk to align
the straight edge of the Flap; measure using the middle of the
Main Panel, as the sides veer higher).
Sew 2 lines of stitching to attach the Flap to the Exterior Main
Panel - the first line will be a scant 1/4” away from the straight
edge, then sew a second line 3/8” away from the straight edge.

16. Topstitch the outer edges of the Tab using 1/8” seam
allow ance.
Fold the short end of each Tab toward the wrong side by 1”.
Bring the bottom edge up so that both short ends meet. Place
a metal rectangle at the top folded edge of each Tab. Use Won-
der Clips to hold in place. Repeat for the remaining Tab.
17.
Place the

Tabs on the Exterior Flap; each Tab will be
1/2” in from the side edge of the Flap and 1/2” up from the
straight edge of the Flap.
Sew a horizontal line 1/4” above the bottom edge of the Tab,
and also sew 1/2” underneath the hardware.
If you wish to use a rivet, attach it to the Tab at this time.
15. (for cotton fabric only) Sew one pair of Tabs right
sides together using a 1/4” seam allo wance, leaving one short
straight edge unsewn. Clip corners. Turn right side out and
press, also pressing the opening toward the wrong side by
1/4”. Repeat for remaining pair.
(for leather only) Place one pair of Tabs wrong sides
together. Use glue stick or fabric glue to temporarily adhere
two tabs wrong side together. Repeat for remaining pair.
18. Place both Exterior Main Panels right sides together,
aligning the c enter markings and the top corners. Pin in place.
Sew using 1/2” seam allowance. Notch the curved edges, then
trim the seam down to 1/4”.
Repeat for the Lining Main Panels, except sew at 5/8” seam
allowance instead. Leave a 5” opening centered along the
bottom of the lining.

20. Press the top edge of the bag. Topstitch the top edge
using 1/8” seam allo wance (do not topstitch on the Flap). I like
to lengthen my stitch length for topstitching.
21.
(for c

otton fabric) Press the short ends of the Strap
toward the wrong side by 1/2”. Press the Strap in half along
the long edge, wrong sides together, so that both edges meet.
Press. Open out and fold the top of the fabric down to the
crease. Then fold the other edge in to meet the crease and
press. Fold the entire piece along the first fold, enclosing the
raw edges, and press.
(for cork or leather) Fold the strap in half, then place Wonder
Clips to hold the layers in place.
Topstitch all 4 edges of the Strap using a 1/8” (3mm) seam
allowance.
22.
Press one shor

t end of the Strap toward the wrong
side by 1”. Slide that end of the Strap through one metal
rectangle. Sew 2 lines of stitching (1/4” away from the edge of
the fabric, and again 1/2” away from the edge of the fabric).
MAKE THE ADJUSTABLE STRAP
19. Turn the bag Exterior right side out. Place the Exterior
and Lining righ t sides together, aligning the top edges and
side seams. Pin, then sew the top edge of the bag using 1/4”
seam allowance.
Turn the bag right side out through the opening in the lining.
Helpful Hint: Make sure the Flap and Tabs are pushed down inside
the bag; also, the Pocket will be against the same side as the Flap.

Thread the loose end of the S

trap over and under the
middle bar in your metal slider. The end of the Strap will go
through the metal rectangle on the other end of the bag, then
underneath the bottom of the metal slider. Pull about 2” of the
strap through the slider, then stitch the loose end of the Strap
to itself using 2 lines of stitching.
You’re finished! Make sure that you give the bag a good press. Pressing is really important to the finished look of your bag!
