The Boronia Bowler Bag - PDF Sewing pattern

$8.00 CAD

Maintenant disponible en français! Veuillez choisir votre langue dans la liste déroulante ci-dessus. Description française ci-dessous.

The Boronia Bowler bag is a medium sized bag to be carried as a handbag or cross body thanks to the removable cross body strap.

It features some vinyl accents on the bottom and double straps. The double pull zipper allows the bag to open very wide as it comes down all the way on both sides. On the inside, the bag has accordion style gussets on both sides of the zippered opening so the contents of your bag do not fall out when fully open. There are 2 slip pockets and 1 zippered pocket inside the bag.

Hardware kits for this pattern are available at Emmaline bags.
