Indie Bag-Free Pattern!

I made myself a new fall bag with Pat Bravo’s beautiful Indie prints.  I love the saturated colors in this line.  They are so rich and just seem perfect for this time of year.  This bag has a natural linen band with hand stitches, a shaped top, magnetic snap closure, pleated body and two straps to be worn over your shoulder.

I thought I would share the free pattern for this bag with you! You can download the pdf file right here.  If you make one, I’d love it if you would share a picture in my During Quiet Time Flickr group.
