Meet the City Set, a Bag Collection you won’t be able to go without!
Sew three must-have accessories with our City Set Bag Collection, made up of the useful Card Wallet, on-trend Bum Bag and functional Sports Bag patterns.
Make a bespoke set in matching or complementing fabrics, or use up your scraps. The Card Wallet and Bum Bag use very little fabric, and you only need a metre of lining, outer and interfacing to make all three patterns!
The City Set bags are very satisfying to sew, and the possibilities to customise them are endless. Pick a fun fabric for the lining, a bright colour for the webbing, add a pompom trim, a fringe, some embroidery! You can make something truly unique for yourself or as a really personalised gift for friends and family this festive season.
What’s in the class?
In this masterclass you’ll tackle three different accessories projects guided by the expert tuition of Sew Over It teacher, Layla. There’s step by step videos for every step of the projects, detailed deep dives in the fabric, interfacing & hardware and lots of tips and extras that you won’t find anywhere else. Sew along with Layla to overcome any fears that you may have about sewing bags, and you’ll come away with a gorgeous coordinating set that’s designed just for you.
The City Set Bag Collection sewing patterns are aimed at Confident Beginners.
Medium weight stable fabrics such as cotton canvas, denims, non-stretch velvet, corduroy. Medium weight interfacing. We recommend decovil light as the heaviest interfacing choice, or you can also use multiple layers of a lighter weight interfacing. See the hardware section for additional supplies.
You will need:
– For the full City Set: 4 swivel clips, 4 d-rings, 2 sliders, 6.5m webbing, 51cm zip & 25cm zip
– Sports Bag: 2 swivel clips, 2 d-rings, 1 slider, 3m webbing for handles, 2m webbing for adjustable shoulder strap, 51cm zip. If including the optional welt pocket then you’ll also need an additional 20cm zip
– Bum Bag: 2 swivel clips, 2 d-rings, 1 slider, 1.5cm webbing for shoulder strap, 25cm zip. If including the optional welt pocket then you’ll also need an additional 15cm zip
– Card Wallet: If including the optional welt pocket then you’ll also need an additional 8cm zip
We recommend using 35mm webbing and coordinating swivel clips, D-rings and sliders, but anything between 25-40mm will work well. You may find that hardware is tricky to find in the exact size you need, however as long as your hardware is within 5mm of your webbing size (for example between 30-40mm for 35mm webbing, or 20-30mm for 25mm webbing) you shouldn’t have any problems. Jeans or heavy needles work best if using thick fabric. Size 90 and above are recommended.
We have included instructions and pattern pieces for an optional welt zip pocket that can be added to any of the projects. In the Sports Bag and Bum Bag you will need to cut an additional pocket bag piece. These are already included in the lay plans and fabric allowance.

So what is a PDF pattern?
A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home on A4 or US letter paper. Alternatively you can choose to have the copyshop files printed on large A0 paper, and posted to you at home. If you’re using the A4 or US letter options, simply download, print at home, tape together and let the sewing begin! When you print the pattern, print at 100% (you might have to uncheck the scale box). Print page 1 first, the square should measure 10cm x 10cm.
