Messenger Bag - A Smart Doll Sewing Pattern


The messenger bag pattern is beginner-friendly!

All digital patterns come PDF format and will print on both standard Letter and A4 paper! Instructions are presented clearly with illustrations as well as tips and vocabulary explanations sprinkled throughout! Pattern pieces are located on the backmost pages, so you do not need to print the entire PDF if you'd prefer saving paper.

Once sewn, the pattern will produce an item that will fit a standard Smart Doll as well as any 1/3 scale (60cm) ball-jointed doll.

You may sell products you make from this pattern. You may not, however, distribute this pattern.

*** This is not a listing for a finished product! Given the digital nature of the product, there are also no refunds on purchases. You will have 24 hours to download the pattern after purchase. Please make sure to back up your downloaded PDF file! ***
