The New York City Bag pattern has both INCH and CENTIMETER measurements and is available in both English and Swedish HERE.
This is the small version of the bag, it's sewn all in cotton and the pattern uses foam interfacing.
It's very light and retains it shape so well. I love how comfortable this bag is to wear.
The interior is fully lined and you can easily choose to add a slip pocket or why not even card pockets?
The back has a zipper pocket for your valuables.
The small bag is ~6” (16cm) high, ~9” (23cm) wide and ~1 ¾” (4.5cm) deep at the base.
While the large bag is ~7 ½” (19cm) high, ~9” (23cm) wide and ~1 ¾” (4.5cm) deep at the base. It's sewn in black and gold cork fabric and lined with cotton.
It fits more than one would think, and I love the gold and blue bubble cat fabric in the lining, got it from my mother at Borlänge Sycentrum =)

As always, this pattern wouldn't be without my amazing pattern testers!
Thank you all! Here are their gorgeous bags.
Annette - Made this stunning Disney version! Perfect for those visits to the Magic Kingdom when you want your hands free and valuables safe. She chose to add a slip pocket to the bag.
Barbara Dörig - Whom can be found here on instagram made this super cute dotted one, with the most stunning flamingo lining! She also opted for a slip pocket in the back of the bag.
Cheryl Wright Simmerman - of Adarra Handmade made TWO beautiful bags! I love how she mix and matched the outside for the pretty cork version, and that red vinyl and black one is just so darn cool! She used the card pockets from the Loule bag for the red one, brilliant move!
Eva Arthursson - made this awesome faux leather one, I love the dotted surface and those grey straps goes so perfectly with the binding!
Gillian Woronko - made this awesome denim look one. To match the binding with the lining was such an awesome idea! So beautiful!
Lori Peoples - whom can be found here on Instagram made this super cool cartoon print version!
Michelle of MEW Designs Australia - whom can be found here on Instagram and here on Facebook made this super delish looking (I can't be the only one wanting a candy cane after seeing this beauty?) version. The striped binding is pure perfection!
Pia Jestin - whom can be found here on Instagram made this super pretty furniture fabric version, so stylish! Love that she also matched the binding with the lining!
Kristin - whom can be found here on Instagram made this stunning knitters version! Love the red biding, makes such a perfect contrast!
