Factotum Bag
Merchant & Mills

$20.00 each

From UK sewing supply powerhouse Merchant & Mills, the Factotum bag pattern is a neat cross body bag, small but copious.  Factotum has been designed to hold all your daily essentials.  Fully lined, with two front pockets and a zipped closure.  You can use leather or webbing for your strap.

1cm seam allowance included, unless otherwise stated on the pattern.  Finished measurements: length 20cm, width 30cm, depth at widest point 12cm.

Carolyn Denham and Roderick Field began Merchant & Mills in 2010 with the intention of bringing style and purpose to the overlooked world of sewing.  In supplying patterns, fabrics, and tools that allowed the creation of a desirable functioning wardrobe, they offer a viable, wearable alternative to the increasingly indistinguishable options of the high street.
