Introducing Ellen's Esplanade!

I have a lot to share with you today! Firstly, it's time to introduce my latest Easy Street pattern - Ellen's Esplanade!

I am feeling pretty chuffed about sharing this pattern with you and I can see it being one of the most popular Easy Street patterns simply because its so quick to make yet you still end up with a very classy bag!!


The Ellen’s Esplanade is the perfect day project or a great design to Sew & Sell or whip up and give as a gift! Featuring two handy exterior side slip pockets for phone and keys with the main compartment closing with a recessed zipper. Inside you will find a spacious interior which includes a zipper pocket. If you need more pockets, why not add Pocket Supplement A available in my shop.

Make your bag from all fabrics or a combination of fabric and vinyl or pleather or cork. Your bag can be either slouchy or structured! You choose!

Finished size:
Approx. 38cm W (at the top recessed zipper) X 29cm H X 14cm D
(15” W (at the top recessed zipper) X 11 ½” H X 5 ½” D)

Sew & Sell!

Not enough Pockets, Kenny? I know I LOVE pockets so if you do too, why not add Pocket Supplement A to your bag. It's a really COOL set of extra pockets suitable not only for this bag and The Lunar Collection which I originally designed it for, for last years Bag of the Month Club, but you will find it perfect for a whole swag of bags.
Use it over and over again! If you haven't got a copy yet, you can grab one in my shop for just $2! Which I think is a BARGAIN considering how many times you will find yourself making these pockets!

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.
