This is a PDF sewing pattern for the “Land Army” Bag. The bag has a contrasting flat bow, shoulder strap and simple dart shaping. The flap can be trimmed with 1940s appliqué images included in the pattern, which must be printed on to an inkjet fabric sheet. Finish the homespun wartime look with mismatching vintage buttons. The finished Land Army Bag is 12” (30cm) tall (excluding handle) by 15” (38cm) wide.

This PDF pattern has 13 pages—6 pages of detailed instructions, illustrations and pictures, plus 6 pages of full sized pattern templates which you must print on letter (A4) paper and cut out. There is also 1 sheet with the coloured appliqué for you to print onto inkjet fabric.

All pattern templates are actual size. As some of the templates are too big to fit on one sheet, you must tape the templates together where shown. Instructions for this are clear.
