To celebrate the release of her new book, Big-City Bags, Sara Lawson from Sew Sweetness shares a free pattern over at Sew, Mama, Sew! for making her Kennedy Bag. It’s a structured bag with accent corner tabs and a flap with contrast buckle straps. The buckle straps on the flap are decorative; the actual closure is a magnetic snap. On the inside, there are two smaller pockets and one large zippered pocket. The free pattern is a 20 page PDF with step-by-step photos showing how to construct the bag. She rates the difficulty an intermediate due to the hardware and accent detailing. Go to Sew, Mama, Sew! to find the pattern for this beautiful bag.
