Make your very own Betsy Bag!  Enjoy three different looks from the same bag! With clever construction, movable straps, and a tuck-away top panel, the choice is yours. Wear it as a large carryall, a mid-sized drawstring bag, or a sleeker, smaller tote. Zip up your phone or keys in the secure outside pocket and organize other essentials in interior compartments. With the look and durability of a leather bag, this pattern sews up like a dream in kraft-tex and cotton fabric. Wear it your way.


Included with the kit:

  • Betsy Bag pattern
  • 6 D rings
  • 4 Swivel hooks
  • 1.5 yards Brown Kraftex
