Today let’s have a look at Cloé : a reversible bag pattern for beginners !
Reversible bag pattern
Cloé is a trapeze-shaped carry-all bag pattern, easy to wear, easy to sew and reversible !
A reversible bag is always fun, but a reversible bag for which the right and wrong sides have a variation of design, it’s even more fun ! The same pattern pieces are used to create the yet different right and wrong sides… with a little trick!
Its dimensions are : height 80 cm (31 1/2″), width 36 cm (14″), depth 10 cm (4″).
A practical design
Whether worn right side out or wrong side out, this bag has a front pocket (with a contrasting triangle on the right side or with a contrasting diagonal strip on the wrong side) and a center divider inside.
Reversing the bag
To reverse this bag easily simply plunge your hands inside the bag, grab a corner in each hand and pull them out through the opening. Shake and voila!
Instructions and pattern
Instructions for the Cloé pattern are 18 pages long including 8 pages for the full scale pattern tiles.
In the PDF file you will find :
- Detailed and illustrated sewing instructions

Because I created this pattern with beginners in mind, I wanted the necessary supplies to be minimal: one meter of fabric, one meter of contrasting fabric, thread and that’s it!
And even if you’re not a beginner anymore, it’s always nice to be able to sew a quick and easy project with few supplies to satisfy an urge to sew!
Here are some of the bags, made by you, using the Cloé pattern.
