The Snapdragon Satchel - PDF Sewing Pattern
The Snapdragon Satchel is a unique medium-sized messenger style bag that has 2 flaps: one that covers a front exterior pocket and a 2nd flap over the first that is the bag's main closure.
This bag can be made either vinyl, canvas, quilt weight cottons or a combination. The exterior gusset has pleated sides and a vinyl bottom. This bag also features OPTIONAL hardware including a half moon magnetic clasp and some shiny metal trim for the bottom flap. However, regular magnetic snap closures or turn locks may be used instead.
