Make Fun Gathered Bags using Free Pattern

Sewing Patterns

Many wonderful gathered bags are to be made with this detailed free sewing pattern. This design will be a great summer bag in aqua/green or other happy color scheme. Make it now and use it later: use combinations of moss, orange and reds and you’ll have a great Fall handbag.

Gathered Bag Features

    • Separate flat bottom, for volume, shape and find-ability of your stuff

    • Super easy to make,

Free pattern. I love it.
