Emma PDF Pattern

(5 customer reviews)


The Emma shoulder bag is a great little ‘grab and run’ bag when you don’t need to take a lot of stuff with you!

Comes with TWO versions to choose from! Version 1 has a cute little frill and closes with a magnetic snap. Version 2 has a flap which closes with a twist lock. Both versions have an interior zipper pocket to keep your valuables secure and a slip pocket. Emma sports a FUN braided strap.

Great weekend project and you can even use up some of those leftovers in your stash!

Finished bag size = Approx. 20cm W X 18cm H X 5cm D (8” W X 7” H X 2” D)


The pattern for Emma has 24 pages of instructions which include 50 step by step colour photos. There are printing instructions and a ruler to check scale.

8 Pattern pieces are included as are measurements for both Metric AND Imperial!

PLUS a TEXT ONLY version (5 pages) of the instructions comes bundled with your pattern for printing purposes, should you not need or wish to print all of the photos! Simply refer to your electronic versions for photos if needed! Saves on ink!

    Loved making 3 of these for our nieces! Such a cute pattern.

    Such a lovely girls bag I have made 3 times for granddaughters. I really loved the plaited strap idea and so did my granddaughters! . Great instructions as is usual for ChrisW.

    Emma is so blinkin’ cute. I am petite and this bag a fabulous size for me. The curvy flap is just so perfect. The bag comes together quickly, pattern pieces are accurate and directions are clear.

    I made the Emma with the flap and it came out so cute! Easy to make and excellent instructions. This one doesn’t take much time to make either. I plan on making more with and without a flap.

    I love, love, love this pattern, it is a wonderful size and goes together with ease. The pattern and instructions are perfect and I have lost count of how many I’ve made. lol
