Introducing The Sneaky Satchel from the ChrisW Designs Minimise to Maximise Collection
Tuesday, 23 March 2021
Oh hooray! At last it is time for me to share my latest Minimise to Maximise pattern, The Sneaky Satchel!
The Sneaky Satchel is a part of my Minimise to Maximise Video course collection. Designed to be super quick and easy, the Collection is not like an ordinary PDF pattern.
Video Course INFO:
The Sneaky Satchel from the Minimise to Maximise Collection, is presented as a Video Course, for those of you enjoy more visual help. I show you how to make your satchel from start to finish. I cover everything from printing your pattern pieces, hardware, interfacing and stabiliser requirements and more. With short and sweet lessons showing you each step of construction, you will never be overwhelmed. You won't be left wondering how to do something!
Included with your Video course is a PDF containing Pattern Notes and Fabric Suggestions, Full materials Requirements List, Cutting notes and a Cutting Chart. Also included are 10 shaped and rectangular pattern pieces, as well as cutting measurements for those that prefer to cut the rectangles with a rotary cutter. You choose! A handy set of cutting labels is included for this purpose.
There is a Basic Instructions Cheat Sheet check list included. This is perfect for use after you have followed the course and made your first satchel. Then you need only refer to the videos if you need to, for subsequent satchels!
Both Metric and Imperial measurements are included! For printing purposes, the PDF file is provided in both A4 and Letter sizes. Simply choose the file size to match your paper size.
The Sneaky Satchel is a quick, fun cross body bag which you can whip up in no time. Featuring a unique design which allows you to pass the adjustable strap through the back of the bag and attach around your waist to wear as a hip bag. Or use the area to hang your scarf or lightweight cardigan when out and about and it’s no longer needed.
At the back of the bag is also a vertical zipper pocket. Perfect to stash a smaller phone or keys. I use it to stash my iPhone X. The stylish flap closes with a magnetic snap and inside the bag you will find a roomy compartment and another zipper pocket.
Perfect for Sew and Sell!
Approx: 18cm W X 24cm H X 3cm D (7” W X 9 ½” H 1 ¼” D)
