Important Note: My PDF patterns are a little different than others. The way it works is that once purchase the pattern, you will receive a code in your email (within 24 hours) which is good for 1 download (save the pattern on your computer). Once you download the pattern, there are many different options for printing, if that is what you desire. The pattern includes detailed instructions with lots of pictures
Gabbie’s Grove is a super cool foldover bag which you can use as a tote or fold it over and use as a crossbody bag or put your arm through the Top Body Strap and use as a large clutch. You can even wear it as a backpack just by looping your adjustable strap through the Top Body Strap for a foldover backpack or the Handle Straps for a full tote backpack.
However, this foldover is not your ordinary rectangular flat foldover bag as it has a super cute and unique shape which gives you a super roomy main compartment. On the exterior back you will find a phone or key slip pocket for quick access and on the front, a zipper pocket which is hidden when you fold your bag over. Two magnetic snaps close your main compartment to keep everything nice and secure.
Finished size: Approx. 14” W at widest point X 15” H when unfolded or 9” H when folded X 4” D at the base.
Comes with a bonus helpful free video on downloading, saving and printing your pattern plus a bonus free video for printing with an iPad!
