Mrs H – The Ring Sling – Paper Pattern

Mrs H designed The Ring Sling as her perfect everyday bag. This bag is the ideal size to sit on your hip or under your arm, depending on whether you prefer a cross-body or shoulder bag. And, with four outer pockets as well as a slip pocket and zipped pocket inside the bag, it can carry a surprising amount!

The Ring Sling bag is cleverly constructed to reduce cutting time and maximise stability. Through the off-set seams the bag has stability with very little stabiliser needed. In fact, if you’re using faux leather, you may wish to omit the stabiliser altogether!

This bag sewing pattern works best with non-directional fabrics, due to the off-set seams. The outer seams are in the centre front with the lining seams on each side edge.

Mrs H – The Studio Backpack – Paper Pattern

New from Sewing Patterns by Mrs H – The Studio Backpack! With a modern design and clean lines, The Studio Backpack would make a great work bag, school bag or everyday bag.

The Studio Backpack uses a lot of bag bling. The adjustable backpack straps are fixed to the Studio using strap tabs securely attached (and riveted for extra security!) to O-rings at the top of the bag.

Short strap handles also affixed through the O-rings give you another set of options for carrying your beautiful bag. Depending on the length you choose to make your strap handles, you could also carry The Studio on your shoulder, in the crook of your elbow, or as a tote in your hand – when you’re not wearing it as a backpack, of course!

No surprise – this design is packed with pockets! On the outside, two large slip pockets that are ideal for showing off fabric panels, or customising with embroidery, patchwork or a little extra bag bling. Inside, under a secure top zipper closure, there’s a lovely large central space, zipper pocket, and slip pockets.

Designed for adventurous beginner bagineers, The Studio Backpack bag sewing pattern includes a lot of different bagmaking skills, with comprehensive instructions to guide you through as you learn these useful techniques.

For more experienced bagineers, The Studio Backpack offers excellent opportunities for customisation. You could play with patchwork, quilting or embroidery with the large outer panels, experiment with different types of hardware, or even add (even more) pockets! If you’re new to adapting bag designs to fit your style, we recommend picking up a copy of Mrs H’s Complete Bag Making Masterclass
