First of all let me tell you a bit about the Shine On Sling Bag.

The Shine-On Sling Bag is the ‘stand out in the crowd’ bag you have been waiting for.  Bohemian inspired this casual bag will be the shining light to complete your outfit.

The Shine-On Sling Bag has a number of standout features which you are sure to love including:
• Wide adjustable shoulder strap for comfort
• Big ‘O’ rings for a statement finish
• Crossover pockets which allow you to feature two of your favourite fabrics, match or clash your prints for a unique look!
• 8” (20cm) zipper pocket
• Magnetic snap closure
• Slouchy, comfortable design
Designed for comfort The Shine-On Sling Bag will take you from Sunday markets to lunch dates. Big enough to store your essentials plus more! The Shine-On Sling Bag is a great size to include a quilted or applique on the front body panel as a feature too!

Step 1: Purchase your copy of the pattern here and print at home.

Ensure that the 1″ test square prints correctly, if it doesn’t adjust your print settings – try actual size and don’t allow the printer to make size changes.

Hot Tip: You can just print the pattern pieces and review the instructions on a device such as laptop or tablet to save on paper and print costs.

Step 2: Collect all of your supplies. Have a think about your feature fabrics, this is a great bag to add a feature on the front like above. You could try a quilting block, foundation paper piecing design, applique design or sashiko! You can also use your favourite large scale fabrics, large prints look amazing on the front panel, fussy cut your favourite to make it stand out!
