Hooray!  I learned something from the first bag and am more pleased with this second one.  Abbreviated instructions are below.  For comprehensive instructions, please visit my blog.  (Sorry if that's a pita, rules about not copying from blog over there, and here about requiring instructions make it tricky.)


  • Measure height, back-waist, and waist of your child.
  • Divide height by four, waist by three and double back-waist length and add four inches.
  • Cut four rectangles for the bag and lining using height by waist measurements.
  • Cut one long rectangle four inches by back-waist measurement for strap.
  • Cut two rectangles one quarter size of bag pieces for the pocket.
  • Interface all pattern pieces, except strap.
  • Assemble as you would a typical bag.   Grin

I love this! I am totally making a man-bag for my 4 yr old. It's difficult to explain to him why the hot pink canvas and white leather mini-purse filled with Star Wars men just doesn't fly... But a boss Man-bag his size,  will be perfect.

 Kiss  I'm glad he's so secure in his masculinity.  Let me know if you need help with the bag!
