Layla Shoulder Bag

Digital PDF Sewing Pattern


This is an easy make and can be made with or without piping and wadding to suit your own taste. It is a handy size top opening shoulder bag with two external pockets and two pockets inside one with

a zip.

The strap is a key feature of this bag and there are decisions to be made before you go shopping. Firstly, how are you going to attach your strap?

We have included instructions and pattern pieces for a fabric strap with D- rings and swivel clips or strap carriers. If you are going to dive in and do the chain strap version read through the fitting instructions to decide what weight strap and what attachment method to ensure you only buy the bits you need.

An Inset zip carrier to top opening means your valuables are safe and secure inside your bag and there is plenty of organised storage with two external pockets, one internal zipped pocket and one internal slip pocket.
