“Perfect size for a purse. The side pockets are awesome. I made it as a gift for my MIL and she LOVED it! Not difficult at all to put together.”
The Aivilo Satchel features pretty ruffled pockets at the outside corners, complete with an easy to sew elastic casing to keep contents secure. Customize the interior with a simple patch pocket or a hidden zipper pocket - or both!

½ yard exterior focus fabric
5/8 yard coordinating fabric for exterior pockets
1 ¼ yard coordinating fabric for lining, straps and bottom
1 ¼ yards fusible fleece interfacing (I like Pellon brand 987F)
1 package 5/8” wide elastic
1 button measuring between 1 ¼” to 2” (a button with a shank will work best for this project)
disappearing ink pen
1 safety pin (to pull the elastic through the casing)
12” zipper (optional – if making the zipper pocket)
Perfect size for a purse. The side pockets are awesome. I made it as a gift for my MIL and she LOVED it! Not difficult at all to put together.
Really Cute bag pattern. My bag turned out great! The side pockets are functional and pretty! The pattern was easy (for the most part) but I had a difficult time understanding how exactly to attach the exterior bottom to the bag. My husband had to read it and explain it to me. Even though the bag was easy to make, it was a bit time consuming.
The size is ideal and the lining has plenty of room to add lots of pockets. I really appreciated the optional zipper pocket section. It was my first zippered pocket and the instructions were so helpful. I've even used them to add a zippered pocket on another bag I was making for my daughter. Overall, it's an excellent pattern and I highly recommend it for an advanced beginner and up.
Loved making this bag The end result was great
GREAT bag instructions and pattern. I made four of these in a weekend for my girls gym bags. Outside pockets are perfect for water bottles and other things. Inside was roomy enough for all a teenage girl needs for gym(and after). Well written clear instructions. LOVED IT
