The Run & Play Bag is a great small-medium sized bag that can be made as a shoulder bag OR as a cross-body bag. The shoulder strap even has a super fun element on it – a zip! The angled flap and curved body of this bag give it a special and unique look.
The finished size of the Run & Play Bag measures approximately 9” tall x 12½” wide x 3” deep (23cm x 32cm x 5cm).
NB:These measurements do not include the drop of the Shoulder Strap/Adjustable Strap.
Let me tell you more about this fabulous pattern and its features…
The Run & Play Bag can be made as either:
– A Shoulder Bag (with a zip on the strap – one of the bags many unique features!), OR
– A Cross-body Bag
The Run & Play Bag has a unique angular flap, with magnetic snap closure. Inside the bag you will find a small zip pocket.
The Run & Play Bag is a very quick project – it took my testers between 1 and 4.5 hours to complete the bag. That time includes: printing the pattern, cutting the fabric, applying the interfacing and sewing the bag!
Because it is such a quick sew, this pattern would be great to make as gifts for friends, and family during the holiday season! It would also make a great quick sew for teachers gifts at the end of the school year 😉
The Run & Play Bag is classed as a “Beginner – Confident Beginner” level pattern. The only part of the bag construction that moves it in the direction of “Confident Beginner” is the internal zip pocket…so if you are a beginner bag maker who is not confident with zips, you can just leave that out…OR using the great colour photos and instructions included in the pattern you might choose to tackle your 1st zip pocket!
