WOOP! It’s time for a new pattern! This one is another Easy Street pattern – Fiona’s Freeway:

Fiona's Freeway - A ChrisW Designs Easy Street Pattern

Fiona’s Freeway is a fun smaller bag featuring a unique shaped flap, closing with a magnetic strap and grommets with a pull strap. The front of the bag features a vertical zipper pocket. Inside the roomy middle section is also another a zipper pocket and a slip pocket.  Also included is a large flap grommet free version for those of you who don’t like installing grommets! This bag is perfect for cork or vinyl accents sewn on a domestic sewing machine.

Finished size: Approx. 23cm W X 25cm H X 9.5cm D (9” W X 10” H X 3 ½” D)

This pattern is primarily written for cork/vinyl accents however the instructions are included to make it from all fabric as well.

So just what is an “Easy Street” pattern? Just to recap:

Our Easy Street Patterns are relatively quick and easy to make, yet still retain some pretty COOL features ChrisW Designs is renowned for, making them more than just a run of the mill design. However they are not aimed at beginner bag makers as they do assume some prior sewing skills and previous bag making experience. Primarily these patterns are aimed at the Sew & Sell maker looking to add some unique & stylish designs to their inventory being less time consuming to make than our ‘regular’ range of designs. They also make great gifts or a satisfying quick sew just for FUN!

Note: Easy Street Patterns have smaller PDF’s and as such provide cutting measurements only for rectangular pieces and do not have a text only version at the end.
