Castell Day Bag Pattern
Note: An internal wire frame "Style C" is required to create the unique curved shape in this project.
The Castell Day Bag is a unique bag with a beautiful, curvy shaped top. With wire frames around the opening, it opens wide to make this the perfect bag to haul all of your much needed supplies for the day. This bag functions like a carpet bag, but uses smaller, more affordable wire frames that are found in our shop. You can make the bag without the wire frames, but it will have a square top instead of a curved/domed bag top.
There are 2 gathered pockets inside, perfect for holding personal items. This curvy girl holds a lot of stuff and looks good.
Instructions for an adjustable detachable shoulder strap are included, as well as handbag style straps that sit on the crook of the arm or in your hand. The detachable shoulder strap attaches by clipping on the rings for the handbag straps.
This pattern suits an experienced intermediate to advanced bag maker.
The pattern includes colour digital drawings and full size pattern pieces that include seam allowances for pattern pieces that are not simple rectangles. Cutting instructions are provided for you to use a rotary cutter, ruler and mat to cut rectangular pieces. Pattern instructions are in both imperial and metric measurements.
