This little bag will take you from desk to dancing, traveling to touring, and everything in between! By combining two bags into one, it can be converted into four different types of bags in two different colorways or styles. It is sure to be perfect for any outfit or occasion and is ideal for travel!

Both regular and laminated cottons work beautifully with this design. The patterns also includes instructions to make a removable liner to keep the inside of your bag clean and to make bag changes easy.
