Finished Shoulder Bag

My bag is finished, but the magnetic closure I put in under the flap doesn't work very well, so I'm thinking about using velcro or a big button maybe. The recycled buckle I used at first with the little flap didn't work either, so that went. I'm impressed with the pattern though, very clear and easy to follow.
Edited 8 May: I wasn't really happy with the magnetic clip I used. Eventually it would have ripped the fabric, so after some Googling, I found a blog that referenced the same clips, and suggested a solution. I'll sew the clips inside the bag flap and the front.


  1. Your new bag is lovely! I will have to dig this pattern up out of my sewing cupboard. I've always wanted to make it, but the piping has scared me off! I love Moonshine patterns because they are so clearly written. Enjoy swanning about with your new creation slung over your shoulder!

  2. Looks great, and useful to boot.

  3. i love the bag...i am so glad you have finished it and i am like you was great to finally see it ...i have been waiting to see it finished...if i dont like it doesnt stay...the clip i mean...
