This adorable bag is called the Mini-Screen. It is a petite bag compared to its sister tote, Screen It Up, but don't let that fool you. The finished size is 10" x 9" x 4" deep. It is roomy enough to carry your necessities and stylish enough to make a statement. Its unique curvy shape is sure to turn heads when you carry it, no matter which fabric you choose. You could embellish the bag with embroidery or with a cute iron-on initial if you desire. I have also included detailed instructions on how to jazz up the handles.

It's the perfect size for a lunch bag for yourself or for the girly girl in your life that is starting back to school soon. It would be a terrific purse for the college bound girl who doesn't want a big bag to tote around campus but needs a place to store her "stuff."

The PDF pattern is loaded with more than 65 pictures to guide you, step by step, when making this unique bag. It will feel as though I am right there with you the whole time. I have also included a "Sewnopsis" at the end of the e-book. What is a Sewnopsis? It is a single-page reference tool that has all the important steps from the pattern. It is helpful to keep by your sewing machine so you don't have to run to and from the computer to see what to do next. Saves money on printing too. It includes the supply list and cutting instructions, making it super handy to keep in your purse when fabric shopping for the project. This is sure to become one of your favorite features about my patterns.
