The Poacher’s Bag – PDF Pattern

The Poacher's Bag Sewing Pattern by Emma Brennan

The Poacher’s Bag is inspired by British country life in the 1940’s with a gathered front pocket set into a pieced front.  It features an unusual shaped flap and a template for an interior pocket that doubles as an alternative flap option.  This style can be made with a self-fabric strap, or a purchased leather strap attached with tabs.  It makes up well in everything from cotton moleskin and tweed to contrasting patchwork fabrics for a different look. Finish the retro homespun feel with mismatching vintage buttons.  Poacher’s Bag finished dimensions:  height 12½” (32 cm) width 15½” (40 cm).
