The Polaris Bag is a small bag perfect for carrying essentials.  This bag features optional piping, and an inner zippered divider pocket. There are two shapes available in the pattern: square or oval options.

The  Polaris Bag was my second Bag of The Month Club 2016 project.  In the Bag of The Month Club you buy a bundle of 6 surprise patterns and you’ll receive 6 patterns, one a month from January – June and It’s a surprise what the pattern is before you receive it! The Polaris Bag is the March 2016 pattern.

Pattern Polaris Bag by Sara Lawson from Sew Sweetness.  Sara Lawson teaches the Craftsy class: Building Better Bags: Interfacing & Structure

Fabric: I used different type of fabrics: Quilting cotton, faux leather (burgundy) , and faux suede (beige)

Foam Stabilizer:  Bosal Sew In Foam Stabilizer

 

The Polaris Bag design is plain, the fabric that you use in the exterior is what makes this bag more interesting.  I decided to do a patchwork and quilted some of the pieces to the foam stabilizer.

My inspiration for the bag patchwork was this Channel bag that I found in Pinterest.

I combined faux leather with suede, and quilting cotton fabric and the piecework is different in each side of the bag.

You’ll need 2 zippers for this bag (One 14″ zipper for the closure and one 7-9″ zipper for the interior pocket and the only hardware needed is 2 – 1″ rectangular rings for the strap and you can also add rivets on the strap.

I’m happy in how it turned out and I would sew it again.

The pattern include illustrated sewing instruction that are easy to follow and also nice bag sewing tips including how to sew the binding closing it in a circle fusing Pellon SF101 interfacing before sewing it to the bag.  It gives it a nice enclosed finishing.

You can add grab handles to the bag instead of a side strap. The Tutorial Pattern Hack – Polaris Bag shows you how!

 

I hope you like this pattern.

 

Happy Sewing!
