The Rose Gathered Shoulder Bag - PDF Sewing Pattern
The Rose Gathered Shoulder bag has been brought out of retirement!
This is a pretty bag with a focus panel in the center and 2 coordinating panels on either side. Both sides of the bag have 2 channels sewn to add a fabric tie which you can tie into a bow or a knot depending on the look you prefer. The bag stays closed with a flap and magnetic snap or turn lock. The update also now includes the option for a zippered main closure. The bottom of the bag has 8 pleats to give it depth.
On the inside of the bag, there are 3 slip pockets and 1 zippered pocket.
