The Boyd Street Bowling Bag has classical styling with two attractive pleats on front and back, and a smooth, rounded bowling bag shape. This bag has plenty of room and can be made in fun cotton print fabrics or beautiful wool for a classical Fall and Winter bag. With it’s shorter handles, this bag carries like a handbag, or swings nicely on the crook of your arm.

Included are instructions for a double open slip pocket, an internal zipper pocket, and a removable/adjustable shoulder strap made in fabric. There are also instructions for handles for both fabric and vinyl/leather.

This pattern is perfect for an experienced intermediate (fabric version) to an advanced sewer (leather or vinyl trim.) NOTE: Sewists attempting to use vinyl or leather must already have vinyl/leather purchasing and sewing experience. You should know what fabrics work well in multiple layers on your own sewing machine and how to adjust your tension. The vinyl & leather instructions are for an advanced sewist. Attaching vinyl or leather handbag straps require using studs or rivets.

The Finished Size of the bag is approximately: Length: 16” (41 cm) across bottom, Height: 10” (25 cm) at middle center, Width: 5” (13 cm) wide at bottom.
