Sofia Sling Bag - Pattern Release!

I'm super excited to be able to share with you my latest bag design, the Sofia Sling Bag! This bag is actually is from a dream I had, and I had to get out of bed at 4:am to sketch the bag so I wouldn't forget it in the morning. It turned out even better than in my dream if I may say so myself. 

This pattern comes with both inch and centimeter measurements, is available in both English and Swedish here in my store.

The Sofia Sling Bag is named after a very dear friend, Sofia of Tråkärlek. She's not only a wonderful person, an amazing inspiration as a bagineer (I still love that word!) but also one of those people that makes you a better person by just being around her. I'm so glad she shares name with the Bulgarian capital so I could name this bag after her and a city, following my naming convention ;)  If you want to be inspired by her makes too, see below her beautiful tester bags and see my previous post here to see her epic collection of Bergen Bags.

This bag is truly such a fun make, this version is made with cotton fabric from Blended Thread, a print called " Dreamy Floral". And their cotton fabric is a DREAM to work with, such amazing quality. The pearlescent pink vinyl is from Borlange Sycentrum. All the gorgeous gunmetal hardware is from Emmalinebags

The interior has a simple lining zipper pocket that we also turn the bag through. 

As well as open slip pockets.

My amazing pattern testers were awesome as ever and tested the pattern for me, and they have truly outdone themselves this time! WOW! A sincere thank you goes out to each and everyone one of you for helping me make each new pattern -  into my best pattern yet! 

I'm so very grateful for all your help and hard work, I could not do this without you!

Sofia Nilsson - after whom this bag is named, of TRÅkärlek whom can be found here on Instagram and here on Facebook, made no less than SIX gorgeous versions! 

This stunning version is made in a jersey, stabilized like described in the pattern when working with woven cotton fabric with Vilene G700 before adding the foam. Love the addition of the band to the front and the decor woven bands to the side straps. 

This beauty is made in a cotton woven with vinyl accents. Look at the appliqué hearts in the flap! The following three bags she's let the front of the bag be solid without the seam for another great look. It's really simple to do if you wish to replicate the look, just cut the exterior as one whole piece, 25 x13" big, and measure the corner cut outs from the exterior short sides. 

This beautiful black and gold version is made with tencel fabric with a vinyl accent. So in love with the applique heart in the pocket, and the heart lock!

This lovely navy blue version is made with two different vinyls. The woven look one matched perfectly with the smooth.

This stunning Burberryesque version just took my breath away!

This stylish sporty version has her ice dancing clubs logo embroidered on the flap, and the side straps are cleverly embellished with reflective woven bands for night time safety.
