With this purchase, you will receive a PDF pattern with detailed pictures and step by step instructions on how to make your own slouchy shoulder bag. This pattern is for the confident beginner and as written, can be made on most domestic machines. We’ve included dozens of pictures to accompany each step, as well as cutting measurements if you prefer not to print out any of the pattern pieces. 

Specs: Finished bag is approximately 13” wide by 12” tall by 4” deep.  It has 1 exterior slip pocket, 2 interior slip pockets, and 1 interior zipper pocket. As a bonus included in this pattern, we have included free svg files to cut out the small leather portions including the tassel. (Please note, we did NOT include svg files for ALL pattern pieces as most are too big to fit on the standard sized cutting mats.)

You may sell the items you make from this pattern on a small scale handmade basis, and credit is appreciated. (Not intended for commercial use.)

Stephie Shoulder Bag PDF sewing pattern

  • Some of the pattern pieces are oriented landscape and some in portrait mode due to their shapes and sizes in order to fit onto the page. It’s not uncommon for a printer to default to a different printing percentage in order to get it to print “right”. So for my printer for example, I choose letter size but then it defaults to “fit to printable area”. I have to unclick that box and click the blank box and type “100%”. Also you’ll want to make sure that neither the “portrait” nor “landscape” button is checked, because it needs to be on “auto”. You will need to piece together the pattern, by lining up the circles and diamonds to create the full pattern pieces. A cut chart is also included in the instructions if you prefer not to print anything and go by measurements only.
