The Olivia is not only roomy and functional but with loads of pockets you will be super organized as well! There are 2 front flap pockets with magnetic catches, two elasticized pockets on the side and a zipper pocket on the back.

The top of your bag closes with a recessed zipper so everything inside is nice and secure PLUS inside you will find another zipper pocket and 2 patch pockets as well!

Finished bag size = Approx. 41cm (16″) X 25cm (10″) X 10cm ( 4″)

  1. Mulia

    Great pattern with very detailed instructions.

    I made this as custom order and mailed it about 10 days ago. Just got an email from my customer and she loves it, couldn’t get over how professional it looks, thanks Chris for such wonderful designs. I can’t get enough of them.

    Great size for business travel with pockets galore. I made it up in leather from a thrifted men’s jacket for durability. Amazing instructions with loads of pictures to assist with the more intricate details. Don’t scrimp on buying jeans/denim needles in at least a 16 (I used18 for the leather). I’ve made 3 of Chris W Designs bags and have to say they are the best bag making patterns I’ve ever used.
