Another nice design by Samantha, this bag has an adjustable strap as well as a handle on the flap, inside zipper pocket and adjustable sides. Not a huge bag but surprisingly roomy due to the box shape.
Where's the handle you're asking. Well as usual I used upholstery fabrics but it wasn't suited to this bag. It was way to thick to sew through all the layers which I'm sure my new Zoje could have coped with if I had had it then.
The sides are adjustable with two buttons.
Magnetic button front flap closure.
Samantha is giving us the opportunity to post a giveaway for the Satchel Bag pattern and all you have to do is leave a comment here on this blog post.
If you can't wait to see if you'll be the lucky winner then go over to Samantha's etsy shop to buy a copy of the PDF pattern and remember to use the code ATHOMEWITHMRSH10 for 10% discount at checkout. Samantha is having a bag pattern sale.
The GIVEAWAY will run until the 20th March 2013 when I will choose a winner using random.org.
I've had a few issues with the internet lately and have found it difficult to get onto my blog so if I have the same problem on the day of the winner announcement I'll post as soon as I can.
If you don't have a blog or on noreply please make sure you leave your email with your comment. If a winner is chosen and I can't email them I will have to choose another winner.
Some of the other testers will also be doing a giveaway so if you want to increase your chances pop over to their blogs and leave a comment there. Liz, Nissa Made and ASG in the SLC have started their giveaways.
