The Ruby Lou Bag – Updated

The Ruby Lou Bag

This adorable bag has a tiny pocket on the front, and button details on the handles. Perfect for little girls carrying all their treasures. The original sewing tutorial to stitch this bag did not include pattern pieces and many Polka Dot Chair fans had a hard time drafting the pattern themselves. For this reason, this pattern has been improved and redesigned. The PDF pattern features full color photos, clear instructions and printable pattern pieces!

What you need:

  1. 1/2 yard of fabric for the outside

  2. 1/2 yard of fabric for the lining

  3. fat quarter for the pocket

  4. 1/4 yard fabric for the gusset

  5. 1/4 yard fabric for the handles

  6. heavyweight fusible interfacing

  7. 4 buttons

  8. 10″ of piping

  9. fabric marking pen
