The Hermes Bag Making Kit - BLANK KIT

**PLEASE NOTE: there are no fabrics included in our blank kits** 

Finished size: 11" (H) x 9" (W) x 3" (D) (28cm x  23cm x 7.5cm)

Ker-pow!  With her classic shape she may be stylishly subtle, but she is no less an attention grabber.  As you can see this bag shape is based on the 'hard working, super practical messenger bag', but I wanted to design a sophisticated, more nippier, but every bit as practical version of the messenger.  She's beautifully padded and with great sized body and 2 roomy pockets, it's easy to organise everything. The faux leather version just looks so professional.  Make her and you will love her, she's sure to become a favourite for years to come.

The pattern is written for making a faux leather bag, but instructions are given for substituting for fabric if desired.  Read more about this bag here.
