Monk Bag + FREE Sewing Pattern
I love, love light cloth bags as opposed to the heavy leather variety. I tend to carry “everything but the kitchen sink” in my bag. Therefore it needs to be as light as possible from the get go. My absolute favourite bag is – this one. The FREE sewing pattern is right here on this eco fashion blog. I’ve made that bag in so many colours. The Monk Bag is similar but different. Here’s how you make it.
You need: –
- fabric – maybe two different colours or prints
- matching colour thread
- sewing scissors
- sewing machine
You do: –
Cut your pattern pieces.
Hem the top of the middle pieces. Zig-zag or over-lock edges if they are inclined to fray.
Pin and stitch all the pieces together right sides facing.
Fold flat and sew bottom edge.
Sew top of strap and hem all around to neaten.
Easy as that.

See you next week.
