Make a Durable, Versatile Bag

Using this pattern from Betsy LaHonta, you’ll learn to make the Betsy bag: a three-in-one accessory that can be worn as a large carryall, a mid-sized drawstring bag, or a sleeker, smaller tote. The clever construction features movable straps and a tuck-away top panel that lets you modify the look, along with a secure outside pocket and interior compartments for organizing all your essentials. Best of all, there are no patterns to trace. Follow the instructions for simple-to-cut rectangles, patterns, and strips, and you’ll find the pattern sews up like a dream in Kraft-Tex and cotton fabric. A rugged paper with a soft, suede-like finish and lovely crinkles, Kraft-Tex looks, feels, and wears like leather—but sews, cuts, and washes like fabric.

Note: This drop includes The 3-in-1 Betsy Bag Pattern and two Kraft-Tex rolls in your choice of color: black, chocolate, natural, or white.
