On my website I'm doing a series where I'm destashing my huge collection of scrap fabrics. ^-^ With every scrap I use up I make up a new little project for it, then give away the project pattern for free! I've amassed over thirty on my website so far, but since this one is a few months old I thought I would move it here as well

This design was inspired by the fabric I was using up, this red/brown tie-dyed faux suede :D I thought it looked a little steampunky, so I went all out with painted gear motifs, topstitching, and hardware.

The pattern is a .pdf where the first half is instructions, and the second half is a printable pattern that you assemble by taping the paper sheets together.


p.s. If you do end up making it, I'd be ecstatic to see it! And I'll give you more adorable sewing patterns as thanks!

Hello, I just wanted to say thank you for sharing this pattern. I made my own bag from it, you can see it here: Steampunk Bag. It was really fun to make and I would make all of your bags if I just had the time.
Thanks again ^-^

I'm sorry ;o; but I made this from out-of-print fabric scraps, so it's pretty much ooak and has been sold. I'm so glad you like it though!
