Fabric Suggestions: Outer fabric: 300-400 gsm, thick woven fabric such as canvas, gabardine, denim, corduroy, woollen fabric, quilted fabric, imitation leather or leather. Thinner woven fabric such as honeycomb, linen or ripstop (nylon parachute fabric) for a "soft bag" effect or to be interfaced with a thick interlining. The use of sherpa is also possible with a reinforcing interlining on the back to stabilise the fabric.Lining: cotton poplin, chambray, seersucker

Fabric Requirements: Fabric requirements can be found here.

Trims required: Matching thread, fusible interlining: woven, non-woven or wadded woven, depending on the desired effect. If you are unsure about your first attempt, choose a wadded interlining. Please note that if your fabric is already quilted, there is no need for interfacing as the fabric already has some hold.

Closed end (non-detachable) zipper: metal or nylon (standard length or chain), 1 x for the centre opening (with 1 or 2 sliders) and 1 or 2 optional for the outside pockets (with one slider)

Optional: thick 40 mm wide webbing for the handles and the shoulder strap in cotton or polyester (softer), 2 x fastening buckles and 1 x sliding buckle for the shoulder strap, all buckles adapted in size to the width of the webbing (use a buckle between 38 and 40 mm for a 40 mm wide shoulder strap). As an option, 2 x hooks to make the shoulder strap removable.

Skill Level: Suitable for an intermediate skill level. A video tutorial can be found here.

Seam allowances are included in the pattern.
