Chris W Designs‘ Emma shoulder bag sewing pattern offers two styles to choose from with version one with a sweet little ruffle and closes with a magnetic snap. Version two of the Emma bag pattern gives the bag a flap that closes the bag and locks securely with a twist lock. Both versions of this sewing pattern offer an interior zippered pocket to store your personal belongings, and a slip pocket for things like your phone or keys. A nice braided shoulder strap completes the look of this bag. Emma makes a perfect grab and go bag when you don’t need to carry a lot with you. The Emma bag sewing pattern is a nice weekend project that you can make use of those scraps in your fabric stash! A stylish compact purse and a fun sewing project!  This bag measures about 20 cm wide X 18 cm high X 5 cm deep or, 8” wide X 7” high X 2” deep.
