A DIGITAL DOWNLOAD PATTERN shoulder bag pattern from the House of Sewgirl called 'THE PORTOBELLO BAG'. If you would prefer a paper pattern (and the metal rings, sliders and twist-lock) posted to you, please see the separate listing.
Suitable for beginners and intermediates, this is one fabulously stylish 'Girl About Town' bag that can be easily made in a variety of fabrics.
Make for the autumn/winter season in yummy tweedy wool or maybe some lush corduroy or velvet, with PU leatherette for the base and flap. In the spring or summer, why not use your favourite patterned cotton fabrics, along with denim fabric for the base and flap. You could even recycle some old jeans or even use pre-loved clothing for a more eco-friendly alternative.
The Portobello bag has an adjustable strap, a lovely twist lock fastening on the flap, an inside pocket and a cute little tissue holder pattern to use up your leftover fabric.
The Portobello bag pattern includes an easy to follow, illustrated booklet and large format, actual size paper templates which you can print off in 12 x A4 pages and easily stick together to make up the pattern, to cut out your fabric pieces.
The finished bag measures approx 28cm wide x 30cm deep (11" x 12"), a perfect size for carrying keys, wallet and tissues, everything you need when you are on the go.

Fabric requirements to make the bag and tissue holder include:
40cm (1/2 yard) outer fabric, base fabric and fusible volume fleece (Vilene H640*) or heavy weight fusible interfacing.
30cm ( 1/3 yard) of cotton lining fabric and medium weight fusible interfacing (for the flap only).

Two metal rings and one metal slider buckle 30mm (1 1/4" ).
One Twist-lock bag fastening*.
A reel of thread.

Denim fabric in dark and medium indigo is also available in half metre units on a separate listing.
Please note that the bag instructions are printed in English only with metric and imperial measurements.
