Megan 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 shoulder bag with two internal pockets one with a zip pockets to keep your purse or phone safe. It has a flap secured by a magnetic snap plus a zip across the main bag opening for extra security.


This is an ideal project for using up that special scrap of left-over fabric with its front feature panel. It has three different fabrics; a main, a feature and a lining.


We have used square strap carriers to attach the strap which gives a professional finish. There are many styles of bag furniture available in an array of finishes from ultra-modern to antique.


As usual with our patterns the use of wadding is optional but does make for a more substantial finish. This example was made using a combination of leatherette and cotton woven fabrics.
