Bag Features

The Squiffy Sling is a great beginner sew. With fun asymmetrical styling but just one pattern piece for outer and lining, it's a quickie! This is a great pattern for showing off your interesting fabrics. Use a solid fabric in a bold colour to contrast with your faux leather base overlay, or use a fun design to really make the shape of the bag pop.

The pattern includes instructions on using  a half moon magnetic snap, creating a fully lined cross body strap and adding both zip and slip pockets. There's also placement markings for using a different fastener on the pattern piece.

Pattern Features

 

The Squiffy Sling paper pattern is an A5 booklet featuring comprehensive instructions, printed pattern pieces, and colour photographs.
