Blue Calla Speedwell Sling Bag – Paper Pattern

The Speedwell Sling bag is the perfect unisex bag. It has one front zippered flap pocket with 2 zippers on each side and closes at the top with your choice of a small thumb lock, turn lock or magnetic snap. When the flap is fully open, the contents will remain inside this front pocket thanks to the gussets on both sides. Inside this front flap pocket are 1 slip pocket and 1 zippered pocket. You may also wish to install one or two grommets (optional) as shown in tester photos in the top band, just above the front flap pocket. These grommets are to allow your ear bud wires when your phone is stored in the front flap pocket.

In the bag’s interior are 2 slip pockets. The strap is adjustable and can be installed to carry the bag either over the left or the right shoulder according to personal preference. The bag can also be carried either on your back or your front.

Please note, the interior assembly is completed with a seam binding finish to give the best possible outcome for the bag. This means the lining is not saggy or baggy and the exterior seams are crisp and will have been sewn a total of 3 times for added strength.
