Pleather PDF Bag sewing pattern by ChrisW Designs

Designed and written with pleather (faux leather, real leather and vinyl) in mind, this bag may have a minimalist appearance on the exterior, with two slip pockets on the sides for your phone or keys; however, inside you will find a multitude of storage pockets for organisation. Its roomy interior is secured by a recessed zipper and boasts an additional interior zippered divider pocket, PLUS 4 extra slip pockets and 2 pen pockets.

Finished bag size = approx. 30cm (12”)  X 30cm (12”) X 11.5cm (4½”). Neither too big nor too small.... :)

I've used ready made straps BUT of course, you can make your own too!

AND....Guess what! The bag makes up GREAT in other fabrics too! For the bag in the next photo I have chosen a faux suede for the main exterior pieces and a quilting fabric for the contrast panels. (Don't you just love the cute little owls? LOL) While a little bag making experience will help you navigate the pattern, it is actually very easy to achieve a great result in fabric:
