New Sacôtin pattern : ChaChaCha, the 3 compartment bag pattern.

{ChaChaCha} 3 compartment bag pattern

ChaChaCha is a compact, practical 3 compartment bag. Its 3 zippered compartments give you a fast way to find what you’re looking for.
Depending on your choice of fabrics, ChaChaCha can be sewn as a city bag or an evening bag.
With the adjustable shoulder strap your Chachacha can be a shoulder bag or a crossbody bag.
Les 4 strap tabs are an original design element and provide a balanced support to the bag so that the compartments do not sag when filled.

2 bag sizes ! 

The pattern includes 2 sizes : Small clutch size to carry your essentials, Medium functional bag size for all your needs.

ChaChaCha Small : width 25 cm (10″) x height 16 cm (6 3/8″)
ChaChaCha Medium : width 30 cm (12″) x height 19 cm (7 1/2″)

Bonus variation !

You know that I like to add a little bonus in my patterns when possible 🙂 … so you’ll find the ChaCha variation, with 2 compartments instead of 3, in the instructions of the pattern!

Printing advice

For the readability of the illustrations, each third of the bag is shown in a different color. We highly recommend to print the instructions in color, or to follow them on a screen.

Advice for choosing fabrics

ChaChaCha specific construction makes the seams between the 3 compartments invisible, even in the linings!
This assembly requiring many manipulations, choose fabrics that fold easily, not too thick, nor stiff.
For each ChaChaCha in picture below, I specify the fabrics used and if interfacing was applied.

ChaChaCha canvas and Liberty

Ecru lurex canvas, interfaced with one layer of Vlieseline (= vilene) G700.

Liberty Lodden cotton with 2 layers of G700 interfacing. I trimmed the seam allowance of 2nd layer of interfacing and applied it over the 1st layer, once it was cold. I applied one layer of Odicoat to protect the fabric, after interfacing.

ChaChaCha velvet and Liberty

Purple velvet not interfaced because it shrinks a lot when pressed.

Liberty Lodden cotton with 2 layers of G700 interfacing. I trimmed the seam allowance of 2nd layer of interfacing and applied it over the 1st layer, once it was cold. I applied one layer of Odicoat to protect the fabric, after interfacing.

ChaChaCha glitter vinyl

Black glitter vinyl (not interfaced).

I tested a diamond shaped quilting using flexible foam. As this adds volume, which makes assembly more difficult, I do not advise to try this for your first ChaChaCha.

ChaChaCha faux-leather fashion fabric

Red faux-leather fashion fabric, thin and supple (not interfaced). The linings are quilting cottons and are not interfaced.
