The Singapore Sling Bag is the perfect everyday handbag, super stylish and just big enough for all the necessities. It has a zipper pocket in the lining which you turn the bag through, as well as open slip pockets. The gusset free design makes it super easy and quick to sew, you'll easily make it in an afternoon. And if you're like me, you'll be making more than one!
The Singapore Sling Bag pattern has both INCH and CENTIMETER measurements and is available in both English and Swedish HERE.
I love this design soooo much! Literally it's the most ME bag I've ever designed, I think it even wins over the Denver Double Zip Bag as my new favourite everyday bag (and I have over 10 of those for my own personal use, so that's not saying little *lol*).
This bag is sewn with Tula Pink's GORGEOUS Zuma line, the little unicorn seahorses of the "Sea Stallion" print are just so adorable and I love them, they fit so beautifully on the flap! The exterior is a matching cotton solid I quilted and the lining is the "Sea Shells" print from the same line.
The back is simple and smooth.
Here is where the magic happens! This zipper pocket is not your average zipper pocket! It's oh so discreet and is made in a different way to let you avoid the regular zipper openings, which so often for the beginner bag maker can turn out uneven.
Of course there are sea stallions in the zipper pocket lining too!
It's just the perfect size for an everyday bag:
~6” (16cm) high, ~9” (23cm) wide and ~2 ½” (6.5cm) deep at the base.
I have a hard time deciding if I prefer the blue or the yellow one, both makes me sooo happy! So once my sewing room is unpacked I'll have to make another one so I have even more difficulties to choose for sure!
