This confident beginner sewing pattern is a quick sew with directions for two sizes. The large bag is a ideal for carrying everything you need for the day. It has a spacious interior with a zippered pocket. The stabilized bottom and fleece interfacing give the bag a sturdy structure.
The small size is perfect for young ladies or those who prefer a small handbag. It is still big enough for your essentials and has an optional zippered pocket.
Choose a shoulder strap or an adjustable cross-body strap to suit your personal style. Either works well with both sizes. Your contents will be super secure with both a recessed zipper closure and magnetic snap on the flap.
The pattern is chock full of color photographs for reference, along with step-by-step instructions. A wonderful pattern for beginners and an easy one to adapt or modify with more advanced skills.
The Fallon Bag was specifically designed with the same curved flap as the Fiona Folding Wallet. The two combine to make a fantastic matching set!
As with all CloBird patterns, the instructions are full of color photographs and clear, detailed directions.
In addition to the pattern, CloBird Designs has a very active Facebook Group that is always there to help and cheer you along the way.

“The Fallon is a beautiful bag. The pattern pieces are well thought out and the construction of the bag flows smoothly. The instructions are well-written and in a manner that is easy to follow. All round wonderful pattern!” ~Anna
“Fallon is a very quick sew and a cute finished piece. I think the shape makes it very versatile to all types of prints. I also think the generous size flap really opens it up to a quilted flap or adding things like a twist lock to the front as well. I could also see it with a very short handbag strap or one of each size as a mommy and me set or the small even as bridesmaids bags.” ~Denny
“The Fallon bag is the perfect size for taking on a shopping trip. Small but big enough for all essentials. I like that it has a zipper closure to keep everything secure and the flap gives a nice feature to the bag as well as providing extra security. Another nice feature is the adjustable handle so it can be worn on the shoulder or across the body. Coupled with the Fiona wallet and the Tilly card pouch it makes a really stylish set.” ~Maria
