  • The Poacher's Bag Sewing Pattern by Emma Brennan

    The Poacher’s Bag is inspired by British country life in the 1940’s with a gathered front pocket set into a pieced front.  It features an unusual shaped flap and a template for an interior pocket that doubles as an alternative flap option.  This style can be made with a coordinated fabric strap, or a purchased leather strap attached with tabs.  Poacher’s Bag sews up well in everything from cotton moleskin and tweed to contrasting patchwork fabrics for a different look. Finish the retro homespun feel with mismatching vintage buttons.  Poacher’s Bag finished dimensions:  height 12½” (32 cm) width 15½” (40 cm).

    Sewing Supplies:

    • ¾ yard (50 cm) of 54” (140 cm) wide or 1 yard of 44” (112 cm) wide exterior fabric
    • 2/3 yard (60 cm) of 44” (92 cm) wide lining fabric
    • ½ yard of 36” (92 cm) wide sew-in craft interfacing
