Don’t be surprised if the Crescent Bag turns out to be your go-to bag. It fits perfectly under your arm and lies close to your body. The large bag has a height of 11” not including the strap, and a base that measures 15” by 3”. The small bag has a height of 8” and a base that measures 12” by 3”. Each bag features custom-sized inside pockets, a folded flap outside pocket, an embellished closure, and an optional magnetic snap for extra security. The pattern includes full-sized pattern pieces, and is easy to sew with only two main pattern pieces. Like all Square Rose patterns, “Creative Options” are included with directions for adding different closures and handles, and super sizing the Crescent Bag makes it a convenient beach, travel, or hobby bag.
The sample shown here is made with cotton furoshiki (wrapping cloth from Japan), and illustrates a great way to showcase a special fabric.
