This version of the City Slicker Bag Pattern is for Intermediate sewers and is perfect for that shopping trip! There are clear instructions for lots of organizational pockets, a decorative (and professional looking!) front twist lock, and a secure top zipper. Finished size is approximately 40cm (15 ¾”) W X 25cm (10”) H X 10cm (4”) D.

MATERIALS LIST: (Note yardage is meant as a guide and may not be exact)

  • Exterior fabric: (Solid) 135cm (1¼ yard) of 112cm (44”) wide fabric
  • Contrast fabric: (Patterned bird fabric in cover photo) 30cm (12”) of 112cm (44”) wide fabric
  • Lining fabric: 90cm (1 yard) of 112cm (44”) wide fabric
  • Fusible interfacing: mid-weight, 110cm (42”) of 112cm (44”) wide interfacing [Pellon Shape-Flex SF101 is a good choice – 3m (3 and 1/4 yards)]
  • ByAnnie’s Soft & Stable: 46cm X 91cm (18” X 36”), or substitute with Headliner Foam and a heavy weight interfacing for the exterior (you can also use fusible fleece, however, you will end up with a bag that is more floppy)
  • Fusible fleece: 25cm (10”) Vilene 640H or 971F Thermolam Plus
  • Matching thread (I use Gutermann Polyester)
  • 1 X 20cm (8”) dress zipper or longer, cut down to size for interior zipper pocket
  • 1 X 48cm (19”) handbag zipper or longer, cut down to size for your zipper closure
  • 1 X small twist lock
  • 4 X 2.5cm (1”) inner diameter rings
  • 12 X 8mm (1/3”) rivets (optional)
  • 2 X 2.5cm (1”) inner diameter rectangular sliders for side strap decoration (optional)
  • Double-sided Wonder Tape
  • Small amount of fray stopper and craft glue for setting twist lock (optional BUT makes the job more professional)
