Reversible bag

This bag is similar to Charlie bag, only that it is slightly smaller and has rounded bottom and darts. The fabric on one side of the bag is leftover from my bib dress. I found this interesting fabric with orange and brown pattern in the nearest thrift store for less than $5 and use it for the other side of the bag. I love thrifting!

I have a little tutorial on how I make the bag in my blog here

PDF pattern for this bag can be downloaded from my blog here


Material Notes

denim-like linen, mystery fabric from thrift store




Garment Type
Linen, Other

    Thanks so much for this pattern! I am a US Peace Corps volunteer living overseas. I work in a rural village in South Africa and I’m teaching a sewing class to some local ladies. I plan to use this pattern in my class and teach women how to make these purses for a small business enterprise. So your pattern will be put to good use!
