A Kennedy Bag…for Sale!

The Kennedy Bag sewn by Skirt Fixation

The Kennedy BagThe Kennedy Bag is a free pattern from Sew Sweetness.   In the sewing community, Sara Lawson, the brains behind Sew Sweetness, is a bag making rock star!  She not only sells some of the neatest looking bags, with very helpful instructions, she has a whole load of free patterns and tutorials, including 20 free bag patterns. The Kennedy Bag sewn by Skirt FixationThis is the second free bag pattern from Sew Sweetness that we’ve made.  All the material for this bag came from a local quilt shop. The Kennedy Bag sewn by Skirt FixationThe main fabric is Joel Dewberry’s Aviary Aqua fabric, and the lining and accents are shot cotton.  The corner accents are wool. The Kennedy Bag sewn by Skirt FixationI changed the way the bag handle hooks onto the side of the bag mostly because the sound of bag hardware clinking together distracts me when I’m out and about!The Kennedy Bag sewn by Skirt FixationThe whole time I was making the Kennedy Bag, I kept marveling that the pattern is free!  Sometimes sewing from free patterns is a bit of a challenge because the quality/quantity of the instruction is less than a pattern you pay for.  But not this bag! The Kennedy Bag sewn by Skirt FixationIn fact, the only complaint I have is probably due to late night tired sewing and not really the fault of the pattern.  I installed the inside zipper pocket sideways!  I probably should have marked which way was up, but the pattern piece ends up being square, so it really is confusing.  And actually, the pocket being sideways is a very handy way to carry an iPad or Kindle. The Kennedy Bag sewn by Skirt FixationThere are divider pockets on the inside as well, so it’s really handy for keeping track of things in a larger bag. The Kennedy Bag sewn by Skirt FixationThe bag closure is a solid metal snap; easy to secure but keeps your things inside.The Kennedy Bag sewn by Skirt Fixation

I’m going to offer this bag for sale for $60.  It really is worth more, but because of the sideways pocket, I’ll offer it for that!  The dimensions are 14” long x 11” tall x 5” deep.  A really nice size.  If you’re interested, shoot me an email:
