Christine Sling Paper Pattern
You will receive a printed full colour 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" instruction booklet, with full pattern templates printed on 20# white bond paper. Detailed pictures, and step by step instructions on how to make your own sling. It will come in a resealable plastic bag and convenient hanging hole. 

The Colleen Tote is a classic semi-structured bag with clean lines perfect for everyday use. With two different views this multi-purpose tote can be changed up to show off large scale prints or you can add interest with a contrasting bottom and handles. You will learn how to make rolled handles, create an in-panel zipper pocket, work with different fabrics, all while building your confidence. In the end, you’ll have a new go-to accessory to wear with pride!

Features: The interior band was designed to help support many different types of handles, including leather. There is a large zipper pocket to stowaway the essentials and two easy access slip pockets to hold a cell phone or chapstick. The key fob was designed not only to manage keys, but the open loop is left open as a hook for sunglasses.
