The Raelyn Bag Trio Digital Pattern
This is a downloadable PDF pattern - best downloaded and saved to a computer, flash drive, or in a cloud service.
You know it happens - you see a pattern you love but wish it were a different size. Enlarging or shrinking by a percentage on your printer is not always the best answer. Patricia has done all the work for you and you can choose. Pattern pieces grouped by size mean you print what you need, and don't have confusing multi-size lines to follow.
The Raelyn Bag Trio is a classy little shoulder bag. With the flirty pleated front, recessed zipper, minimal hardware, and plenty of pockets, you'll be making one to match a different side of your personality or occasion.
The small size is perfect for the fashionable young lady or a glamorous night out. The medium is a great size for an everyday "grab and go" bag, and the larger bag will hold the essentials for a day of sightseeing.
Designed as a shoulder bag, instructions are included for an optional crossbody strap. A curved gusset gives it shape and stability and provides a roomy interior. The medium and large size will hold a full-size wallet along with your other necessities.
Each size has its own Cut List, Pattern Piece Labels, and Pattern Pieces. Printing directions clearly indicate which pages you need to print depending on your size. We've grouped the shaped pieces separately from the rectangular pieces to save on printing costs if desired. All pattern piece measurements are on the Fabric and Interfacing Cut List. Clear instructions with full-color photos guide you through all bag sizes.
