The Sling Bag

A New Purse Pattern

Remember that I gave you a little peek of a purse , in my blog from Tuesday,  that coordinates with that cute  Little Cell Phone Wallet...

The  Little Cell Phone Wallet.... with a new mystery purse

Today I'll tell you all about my new fun and  favorite purse.
It's called " The Sling  Bag"  ....  and it is designed by Samantha ,  At Home With Mrs H  .
Samantha likes to call it , "  The Super Simple Slouchy Sling Bag ."
Did I mention that Samantha is super generous...and has this downloadable Craftsy pattern for FREE?!!

The Sling Bag    Susie's Sunroom
Fabrics:      Kaufman Essex Yarn Dyed Linen Blend Black
                      Denyse Schmidt   by Free Spirit  from my stash   
Closure:  a magnet snap
Handle strap:    I made mine with the two fabrics, and opted not to have the longer across -the -body strap

I love this Essex Yarn Dyed Linen fabric!  I wanted to have a strip of some color show on the outside front , so I added a 3 inch strip to the outer pieces.    I used  Pellon Fusible Fleece 987 interfacing for the outer and lining fabric.  It gives just the right stiffness to stand alone, and yet allow the bag to slouch!

A zippered pocket , and 2 slip pockets in the lining help keep my things organized


The pattern is very detailed , easy to follow, and has lots of pictures, making this a quick bag to make.  

The  Sling Bag... one of my favorite purses!
