Bucket Bag PDF TUTORIAL & PATTERN (Instant Download):

FREE with every purchase - mini bag tutorial. Create an adorable, fully lined 3" x 5" mini bag in less than an hour!

One of the greatest things about this bag is that you can find everything! Its large and firm bottom allows everything to be visible. The Bucket Bag is fully lined and reinforced with Pellon Peltex Ultra Firm Stabilizer. It stands on its own and will always maintain its shape. There are three open pockets on the exterior of the bag featuring a decorative piping detail. The largest is easily big enough to fit your phone, chapstick and coupons. The smaller exterior pockets can hold a pen or two. Inside, you will find a beautiful magnetic tab closure [allowing the bag to be full to capacity, if needed], a hidden zippered pocket and two open pockets. The shoulder strap has swivel clasps that clip through eyelets on the bag for a sophisticated touch. Your keys will never be lost with a key hook that can hang on the outside or inside of the bag.

This bag would also function well as a diaper bag.

This is a very detailed and thorough tutorial with step-by-step instructions, high quality photographs and full size pattern pieces. A basic knowledge of sewing/bag making is most helpful; this bag requires a intermediate-high level of sewing skill.
