My next new sewing pattern to share with you is the Sidekick Sling Bag! This may look a little familiar if you recall my early prototype blog post.
I'm so happy with how this bag turned out. The top has a fun asymmetrical opening with two over-sized grommets for the straps to attach. (BTW, the grommets are super easy to put on! No tools needed. They are made by Dritz and can be found at Joann's) There's an interior pocket, a magnetic snap closure and two exterior pockets. You can have a lot of fun choosing a pop color for the lining that really shows off the bag's unique shape. The bag above is made with my Mod Max™ Leaf print on hemp/organic cotton canvas lined with Robert Kaufman Essex Linen in orange.
Like the Alice Book Bag, this pattern will be available to retailers next month but the PDF version is now available in my shop! Come back tomorrow to see my third and final Spring '11 pattern. (hint: it's not a bag!)
