Rockstar Bag - Printed Bag Pattern

SKU: SSN2020
Designer Name: Sara Lawson
Designer: Sew Sweetness

This medium-sized bag is full of great detailing. It has a top zipper closure and both a short handle and a long cross-body strap. With an outer flap pocket and two inner zippered pockets, you will have plenty of storage space to keep all of your essentials. Although the piping is optional, it definitely gives things an extra kick! The bag has an edgy zipper on the outer flap, and you can make it rockstar-worthy with some optional rivets.

The pattern includes 23 pages of sewing instructions, complete with 55 step-by-step color photos.
