True to its name, this handbag is perfect for daily use. Its generous size means you'll always have everything you need, and the simplicity of the pattern makes it easy to personalize into something you'll love to use every day!
The everyday bag stands 7" tall and 9" wide, with 4" deep gussets at the bottom, and a single 25" long strap. View A has a front accent panel and straps attached with D-rings. The roomy interior includes a patch pocket that can be easily expanded or doubled for more storage.
Medium-weight denim, canvas, corduroy, duck cloth or upholstery fabric are perfect for the body ("self fabric"). Use lightweight wovens like quilting cotton for the lining and accent fabric.
Avoid fabrics that are sheer, stretchy, knit, drapey, slippery, heavyweight, or with pile like velvet or faux fur.
- 1 yard of self fabric and 1/2 yard of lining fabric
- 1 yard of lightweight fusible interfacing (I like Pellon brand Shape-Flex SF 101)
- optional: accent fabric at least 7" x 11" for view A
- optional: two 2" D-rings for view A
- 12" zipper
- basic sewing supplies + a zipper foot
