DIY Eva Bag

A simple shaped bag with countless possibilities for individualization. I named this bag ‘Eva’ because this pattern can be used to make endless and multi-faceted variations. Let your mind wonder and make your very own creation matching your personal style.

Material Notes

Materials: You can choose any kind of fabric you like (e.g. cotton, linen, canvas, corduroy). In case
you choose very lightweight fabric, consider ironing some interface on it to add some sturdiness. For embellishment you can pick anything you like or go with a plain simple version. Let yourself be inspired by the 6 versions I made.

Yardage: two pieces of fabric 50cm/20inch (one for the outside and one for the inside)




Spring, Summer
Garment Type
Bohemian, Casual, Other, Romantic
Corduroy, Cotton, Blends, Denim, Linen, Other

    Thanks Nette. Another awesome pattern! I just finished my bag last night and will post the pictures. It’s very easy to make. And you are right about this pattern is super versatile. Love it and will use it again for different style. :)

    Is it me or the instructions come out all wonky? It has huge pictures, blank pages. Can’t make heads or tales of it? I’ve downloaded it several times to see if it was the first, second or third copy but they are all the same.

    Cute bags. Thank you for the pattern. Would it be possible for you to post the instructions? It looks pretty straight forward but don’t want to mess something up. Thank you in advance and Happy Sewing!

      Hi Adrienne! Do you see the two tabs above the photo? The second one says instructions. I had to look for that one, too! :) Anyway, there you will find a detailed step-by-step instruction! Hope you are going to enjoy making your own bag!

      Thank you. I should have looked but thought the instructions were with the pattern. I copied and pasted the instructions and can’t wait to make some. Happy Sewing!
