Bag of the Month Club: Sadie Expandable Bag

My second contribution to Bag of the Month Club is the Sadie Expandable Bag for July 2016! It has been added to all BOMC membership accounts.

This bag is very easy to make and relatively fast, too. A zippered gusset turns a sleek messenger-style bag into a mid sized shoulder bag. Instructions and pattern pieces are included for using either vinyl fabric or all woven fabric. Introducing the Sadie Expandable Bag!

Sadie is currently only available as part of the Bag of the Month Club, but will be released on its own in January 2017, in both PDF and paper format.

• 1/3 yard (30cm) 44” wide quilting weight exterior fabric
