Kate bag pattern


The Kate bag is designed for those busy days when you need to carry a lot of items and a simple cross-body bag is not big enough. It provides plenty of storage for a busy mum or a businesswoman and with multiple pockets, you can keep everything organized to eliminate clutter at the bottom of your handbag.

It features an external zipper pocket and a front slip pocket secured under the flap for quick access on the go. Perfect place to keep your phone, keys, or a travel card. Additionally, you will find cargo style and zipper pockets inside to keep smaller essentials easily accessible while a spacious main compartment holds the rest thanks to the oval-shaped base of the bag.

Kate bag is fully lined with zipper closure to keep all your belongings secure throughout the day. A perfect shoulder bag that also comes with a removable and adjustable strap, so there is an option of wearing it across your body if that is what you prefer.
