Easy Street Pattern

The Daryl’s Drive is the perfect weekend project or a great design to Sew & Sell! Featuring a wonderfully uncluttered exterior perfect for showcasing your favourite fabric or embroidery design.

The exterior also features a handy quick access phone pocket inconspicuously located in the seam at the back of the bag. Inside you will find a spacious interior which includes a zipper pocket, a pen pocket and two slip pockets.

Make your bag from all fabrics for the easiest sew or a combination of fabric and vinyl or pleather for something a little more challenging. Choose from making your own strap connectors or using metal connectors for added bling!

    First of all I am very partial to this Daryl’s Drive Bag because it was named after ME!!! But I can tell you it is a fabulous bag too! I love mine and get compliments all the time and even had a woman ask me to make her a Daryl’s Drive after seeing mine, which I did. I also am a bag tester for Christine, but I do not receive any compensation other than the pdf bag pattern itself.

    Daryl’s Drive is the perfect size for me and my belongings too. It’s not too large or too small of a bag for me, but you will have to decide what size bag you like. If you have decent bag making skills, you can always enlarge or reduce any bag to suit your needs. Daryl’s Drive is so stylish looking too and I always get compliments on any bags I am carrying that Christine has designed.

    One of my favorite features of this bag is the phone pocket located on the back top of the bag. It is a hidden looking pocket, but so handy to put your phone or keys inside of and it is protected as well as easy to access. Many of Christine’s pdf patterns include her “signature” phone pocket. Inside the bag is a zippered pocket to secure smaller items and the bag itself is such a nice size.

    I love all of Christine’s patterns because they are so well written and the photos are very clear. Even if you have never made a bag before, Christine will take you through each step at a time and before you know it, you have a gorgeous bag! Just start with a bag of your skill level first and then move up as you gain confidence in bag making, which you will following Christine’s detailed instructions.
