New Pattern Release: The Chapel Street Shoulder Bag.

I am so excited to introduce you to my brand spanking new pattern........drum roll please.

The Chapel Street Shoulder Bag

The Chapel Street Shoulder Bag, a touch retro and all style; she may be small but she sure packs a punch! I am a Melbourne girl at heart, my favourite shopping destination is Chapel Street in Prahran. Filled with hustle, bustle and some of my favourite shopping and dining venues. The Chapel Street Shoulder Bag is an ode to all things fun, quirky and stylish!
With a fun and practical ‘Joey’ pocket as the focal point on this bag, it is the perfect way to make a feature of your most favourite fabric. The Chapel Street Shoulder Bag features mitred corners which give this beauty body and form, increasing the depth of the bag overall. With two strap lengths; shoulder holder and arm crook, you can tailor this bag to really suit your personal needs.
The Chapel Street shoulder bag is the perfect grab and go size bag, big enough to hold a wallet, keys and diary and the Joey pocket is the perfect phone and sunglass pocket. Closing with a recessed zipper, all your items will stay put even when you are busy and on the run seeing the sights of the town. The pattern includes appendixes on how to make your own piping and adding an optional zipper welt pocket to the back panel of your bag.
