Lila convertible bag pattern


Pattern details:

Lila bag is perfect for everyday errands or a day trip where you need plenty of space to carry all your essentials. This is an excellent bag that quickly converts from a shoulder bag to a backpack, so if you need free hands just unclip the straps from the side D-rings and attach them to the back panel instead.

Lila bag features multiple external pockets under the front flap (gusset, welt, and patch) and zipper and cargo pockets in the lining. The sewing instruction includes an option to make either a functional front buckle closure or a faux buckle closure with a magnetic snap for more convenience on the go. The bag is fully lined and has adjustable buckle straps.
