DARLA - The shoulder bag

3 customer reviews


Shoulder bag PDF pattern sizes S, M and L


The DARLA shoulder bag offers three different size options, convenient for any occasion. The smallest version, a vertical rectangle, will allow you to easily carry along your wallet, your phone and a small book. The square medium version can contain a few more personal effects. The large size, which is a horizontal rectangle, is perfect for most 16’’ portable computers.

The DARLA bag, closed on top with a zipper and entirely lined, is equipped with a front pocket and flap, a back zipped pocket, an inside zipped pocket and a inside divider. The strap can be adjustable or not.

For perfect finishing in final assembly, choose between French seams or hide the seams with a bias tape, in which case you may also want to add decorative corded piping around the periphery. As options, you may also decide to add a keychain inside your bag or pad it if you wish to use it as a computer bag.

    Comme d’habitude je n’ai pas été déçue de ce nouveau patron. Clair et facile même pour débutante. Les difficultés vont juste être si vous vous en rajoutées comme moi avec tissus et épaisseurs. Je suis ravie du résultat. Encore une fois j’aurais pas cru pouvoir ça un tel projet.
