The Baggalista Paper Sewing Pattern

The Baggalista Sewing Pattern by StudioKat Designs

A paper sewing pattern for a bag hailed as the perfect travel companion by Kathy Southern of StudioKat Designs! The Baggalista features five zippered storage areas, four interior storage pouches, a large zippered back pocket which is terrific for larger items, and an adjustable nylon strap.  Wear it over your shoulder, or cross-body to travel hands-free!  The flap closure will showcase a favorite fabric print. The Baggalista bag functions perfectly with the fabulous PortaPockets Insert which was also designed by StudioKat Designs!
