Washed earth convertible bag


Remember my contribution to the Bag of the Month club last year? It was the Convertible bag pattern.

Well just before Christmas a friend of mine asked me to make him some to give as gifts. This is the first one I completed.

I had trouble working out which was was up because the birds are in all directions!

I used Robert Kaufman Washed linen in Earth for the outer (and the lining as it happens) and the pocket fabric came from Kerry @ Pennydog Patchwork. I thought I'd kept the selvedge so that I could tell you what it was but I can't find it!

As with all convertible bags it can be worn on your shoulder, cross body, or by threading the strap through the back tunnel, as a small backpack.

Hopefully the gift recipient was happy with it, I thought it looked very subtle and store bought in the solid colour with contrast pocket!

I'm really pleased with the convertible pattern, if you want to make your own you can find the pattern on Patterns to Print here.

  1. After I made mine last year, I ended up giving it to my mom because it fit to carry her iPad. Except she kept telling me that she's really like the same design, only wider, so that's on my list to work out at some point, but I've just been too lazy so far :)

  2. I love this pattern. I have made 2 of them and plan to make more on the future. Is a very versatile bag.

  3. Very nice!! I'm sure the ladies who received the gifts were all thrilled!

  4. I thought I recognised those birds! This is a lovely bag, I still need to make one myself....

  5. I love the birds fabric as it is spotlighted when the other outer fabric is all neutral!
    I am sure this gift was a favorite one received!!
    This is an awesome pattern... modern and still functional!

  6. Goodness it's been a year already. Where does the time go. Love this bag.
