About the project

One pattern, many possibilities. What will you make with it?

No more switching bags to match your outfit! This stunning, convertible bag has interchangeable flaps which allow you to transform the bag's style according to your needs. We’ve created 3 variants of the flap for you, but this is just a beginning – possibilities are endless.

Make this bag with a strap to carry it on a shoulder. Skip adding the shoulder strap and you will get a lovely statement clutch. The tutorial contains tips for sewing it with faux leather but you can easily make it out of any other fabric.

The handbag has a zipper closure and is fully lined. Two inside pockets make it easy to keep your purse organized. The strap of the bag is adjustable with eyelets and a buckle.
