IMPORTANT INFO: This is a PDF SEWING PATTERN you download and print at home.
Sew a super cute bound top bag (aka: Granny Bag) using this sewing pattern.
This bag features piped edges to give it structure and help the bag hold its shape. Instructions include how to make your own fabric piping. Making piping is very easy and gives you the option of using your own pretty print fabric. P.S. You do NOT have to cut it on the bias--instructions show how to cut it on the cross grain and apply it to the edges.
Inside there are panel pockets on both sides and each pocket is further divided into two compartments.
This bag makes a sweet handbag or project tote. The handle length is for a handbag, but instructions include a suggested measurement for making it into a shoulder bag. The 4th description photo shows it with shoulder bag length handles.
It closes with a small flap and magnetic snap.
This sewing pattern is a printer friendly 12-pages. There are 8-pages of text & color photo instructions + 4-pages of black & white pattern pieces. Formatted for standard 8.5" x 11" paper. No resizing necessary.
