The Triple Play – Concealed Carry Handbag

A sewing pattern from StudioKat Designs

The Triple Play bag design features:

  1. Three large storage areas to hold everything inside your bag safely & securely in either of the two spacious pouches, or within the main cavity of the bag.

  2. The Triple Play bag easily accommodates an iPad Air even with a padded cover.

  3. Concealed Carry Friendly: with right or left access to an interior pocket or, use this space to securely store your personal items discretely such as prescription medications,  credit cards, and identification.

  4. Two bag-front style options: create a unique, pieced kaleidoscope-effect for your Triple Play bag front exterior or, opt for a single-piece front. Pattern pieces and sewing instructions are included for both styles.

  5. A ruched corded edging option or a pleated ruffled edging option is featured in the Triple Play bag design. A fun addition of texture along the top!

  6. Bag dimensions: 13″ by 12″ by 6″.
