ABOUT THIS PATTERN:
Devoted KPD customers will notice that The Karys Shoulder Bag pattern bears a slight resemblance to our Raelyn Bag Trio. While the bag shape and style were an inspiration, Karys has its own style.
The center and corner accents and optional flap are a nice contrast to the main fabric and add visual interest. The top recessed zipper keeps your belongings securely out of sight. With an interior zipper pocket and three stacked slip pockets and a bottom depth of five inches, you'll be able to carry all your essentials. With so many features, the opportunities for customization are endless.
KEEP IN MIND:
- This bag is designed for vinyl/faux leather, leather, or cork as the exterior material. The pattern is not written for cotton or similar as certain pattern pieces would need to be changed and interfacing requirements would be different.
- This bag is very domestic-friendly as long as your machine can handle vinyl, leather, or cork. There are not any super bulky seams.
- There are a few pieces with raw edges, so Edge Kote is recommended for those pieces. Edge Kote should be applied and allowed to dry prior to using each piece.
- This bag is semi-structured and it will stand up on its own. However, if you would like your bag to have a bit more structure, you can use fusible foam instead of fleece. Be aware that this will make it harder to birth the bag so you may need to leave a bigger opening in the lining for birthing.
Rated for Confident Beginners.
