ABOUT THIS PATTERN:
This is not your usual utility-style backpack. Featuring our signature pleated front pocket on the Alyssa Hip Bag and the Adina Laptop Bag, it's a stylish version of a multi-purpose bag. With only a handful of hardware needed, the focus is on the fabric and zippers. The optional flap hardware adds a bit of bling.
Designed as a personal bag for travel, the sectioned elastic will hold full-sized bottles of shampoo, hairspray, lotion, or even a hairdryer. No more fiddling with those little travel sizes! Three mesh pockets hold wet items, and the exterior pleated pocket will hold your phone or other items conveniently at hand.
Or eliminate the sections, and use the bag for a laptop or tablet.
Rated for Intermediate Bagmaker.
