Clover Convertible Bag by Blue Calla Sewing Patterns (Printed Paper Pattern)



The Clover is a medium sized bag and as the name implies, it can convert from a backpack to a cross body bag. It has 2 exterior zippered pockets on the front of the bag. The interior has 1 zippered pocket and 2 slip pockets. The bottom of the bag is a train case compartment that unzips almost completely for easy access. The flap has a thumb lock (or tongue lock or tuck lock) closure with a handle at the top for carrying. The adjustable strap converts so the bag can be carried backpack style or as a cross body bag.

SEWING EXPERIENCE: This is an advanced sewing pattern requiring previous bag making experience. If you're an intermediate bag maker, the version of the bag without the train case (on the left in main photo) is considered intermediate. This is a longer project - expect your first bag to take between 6-8 hours.
