The sophisticated shape of the bowling bag never goes out of style :) With this sewing pattern you can make the classic bag of your dreams with quilted sides, piped edges, chic handles and lots of creative possibility! Gingercake's newest sewing pattern is sure to make you love sewing even more!
This chic style bag has been remastered to make sewing fun and simple, but also to help you easily create a gorgeous handmade bag that looks professional and unique. Imagine this bag in crisp black linen, funky tribal print, delicate floral, or trendy color blocking. Or, imagine using some of those quilting skills you have be working on to piece something truly unique and special just for YOU. The bowling bag pattern holds so many possibilities.
Sometimes creating a nice bag can be daunting- the extra hardware, the special materials, the thick interfacing, etc. With those thoughts in mind, I designed this bag to use materials that you can easily find at any fabric store AND if you have been sewing awhile, you probably already have most of them at home already!
The finished bag measures 13'' x 9'' x 8''. It features a quilted exterior, sturdy fabric handles, store bought piping (with instructions to cover it in your own material), roomy gathered pockets in the lining, and a pretty zipper closure. Materials used are quilting cottons, interfacing, and batting. There is a bit of simple hand sewing and instructions to easily quilt the exterior with your machine.

The is 20 pages long and includes lots of clear color photos, fabric cutting guide, 1 page of printed pattern pieces, and a page of pattern cutting reference (this means no printing out of simple rectangles!).
