This is a downloadable PDF pattern - best downloaded and saved to a computer.

The Beginner Basics Collection is for those sewists new to bagmaking. Ultra-detailed patterns start at Level 1 for those with no prior bagmaking experience. Each level continues the same detailed format but adds new skills. Using easy-to-source cotton fabric and with little to no hardware, the emphasis is on bringing your sewing creativity and talent to the finished product. 

The Joey Pouch waist bag/sling bag is a Level 3 pattern and teaches these new skills:

  • Cutting rectangle pieces and using a corner template for efficiency 
  • Attaching a gusset to a curved body
  • Making a curved diagonal flap
  • Installing a zipper
  • Making card slots
  • Installing a grommet
  • Binding or finishing raw seams (3 methods described) 

Chasing a toddler in the park was the inspiration for The Joey Pouch. Dragging a huge diaper bag or a purse wasn’t practical. I didn’t need a lot: a phone for emergency, keys, sunglasses, a small snack, and a couple of hand wipes. A diaper change was for the car.

The Joey Pouch fits the bill. Simple features for great function and skill-building include:

  • A streamlined assembly process teaches new skills, eliminates bulky seams, and ensures a great-looking finished bag.
  • A large exterior phone pocket with a strong magnet.
  • A unique diagonal flap that looks great at the waist or across the chest.
  • A strong zipper gusset to hold up to lots of use.
  • An adjustable strap that won’t stretch.
  • Four interior card slots or optional slip pocket
  • Optional grommet and elastic to hold a roll of doggy bags.
  • A roomy interior for lots of stuff
  • The two main body seams can be finished in 3 way

For Beginner Bagmakers, comfortable with their sewing machine, tools, and terminology.

Bag finishes at 8" W x 5" H x 2" D
