Sewing Patterns by Mrs H - The Companion Carpet Bag
The Companion Carpet Bag Intermediate pattern
The Companion Carpet Bag features a full-width front pocket, which you can trim with piping or lace, bag feet, leather handles and optional leather snap tab. Inside there's a zipped pocket and a slip pocket. The pattern uses an internal tubular frame, either 8.5" or 12". You don't need the top snap tab as the frame holds everything closed nicely, but it's a great accent feature!
The Companion Carpet Bag pattern is suitable for pretty much any woven fabrics, from quilting cottons to upholstery chenille. All of the versions made by me have been sewn on my (really rather weak) domestic sewing machine, so you will not need any special machines to make this carpet bag.
The Companion Carpet Bag comes in two sizes, small and large to fit frames 8.5”and 12”. The finished sizes are 12” x 8” x 6” (30.5cm x 20cm x15cm) for the small and 16” x 10” x 6” (41cm x 25cm x15cm) for the large.
