“Made these as a bridal shower gift! They were a hit!”

Relive the glamorous days of travel with this nostalgic duo. The Weekend Bag is the ideal size for a quick get-away featuring an elasticized pocket inside and slip pocket on the back. Choose to make a short handle, shoulder strap, or both! Stitch up the matching Cosmetic Case to hold all your necessary (and not-so-necessary) items. Not going anywhere? These bags are a fun way to store just about anything in style!

This pattern comes with instructions for two bag sizes:
Weekend Bag: 16w x 14h x 5 1/2" d
Cosmetic Case: 10w x 9h x 3 1/2"d

Concise directions and illustrations take you step-by-step through the process. Pattern pieces are sized to print on standard letter sized paper. Enjoy
