Ah, finally - I've finished the pattern for the katybags!
Please either click the "Add to Cart" button below, or in
the blog sidebar. The pattern has instructions for BOTH
the one-strap and two-strap versions, and has full-color
photos with the instructions, so I think it's a great value
for $6! As promised, the instructions are very detailed to
help those who have not worked with piping before, so
it's also sort of a piping tutorial-and-pattern in one.
and listed in the shop so please stop by!
It has the same curvy bottomed shape
and the same overdose of piping.
How is it different?
Apart from being about three times bigger, it's also
a shoulder bag i.e. a tote rather than a clutch.
The strap is also a little curvier
so it blends better with the rest of the bag.
I also put a hidden zippered pocket inside,
purse feet on the outside
and an invisible magnetic snap clasp (love those!)
- see? (Or don't see?)
I like to think of it as the katybag all grown up!
Find it in the shop, too.
I was going to make one in Orla, but I ran out of Orla!
Phooey. This bag takes a lot more fabric than the little one.
Thank you everyone for your patience while waiting for
the pattern to be ready. I hope you enjoy using it!
