Magnolia Bucket Bag

The Magnolia Bucket Bag has a timeless look, yet it’s very functional for everyday use. Inside the bag you’ll find a magnetic tab closure, interior zipper pocket, and key fob. You can choose to add a drawstring with grommets, or leave as a bucket bag.

This pattern has been written as an introduction to sewing with cork fabric! It’s FULL essential tips and techniques for working with cork. If you prefer, this bag could also be made with vinyl, without any changes to the directions.  Experienced bag makers can make this bag with quilt weight cotton, with minor changes to the pattern.  The finished size of this bag is 9-1/2” wide at base, 12” high, and 5-1/2” deep.

As always, I’ll take you step-by-step, so you’ll learn how easy it is to produce a professional-looking bag!  Included are step-by-step graphics to help make the written directions easier to understand. Also included are many sewing techniques and tips to help you achieve a quality, finished project. This pattern is designed to help you learn and expand your sewing skills!  This sewing pattern takes approximately 3-5 hours from start to finish to complete.
