These frustration-free instructions are great for those with at least basic sewing skills - the project involves some gathering. There are instructions for two different types of interior pockets - a simple patch pocket or a hidden zipper pocket for more advanced sew-ers. Change out the ribbon / sash to create different looks! The bag closes with an easy to insert magnetic snap.

Bag measures 11” wide across the bottom x 11” tall x 5” deep
