If you are a bagmaker that likes a little bling, this bag is the most hardware intensive pattern I have written. Why? This comes with 2 straps to be able to wear this bag 4 different ways. That requires a little extra hardware.

The Parrano is packed with unique features and techniques, I guarantee that you will learn something new while assembling this bag! 

Features include a "Honey" pocket on the back panel to hide your convertible strap or a mobile phone, a hidden zipper pocket on the front, 2 types of device sleeves to choose from, a new style of beverage loop to keep your favorite drinks on hand and a new zipper overlay/keyminder combo that I haven't seen before. This will be a signature feature in upcoming KMGhandmade patterns that call for a zipper pocket and keyminder and once you learn my technique for beverage loops, you will be adding it to all your favorite patterns. 

This pattern is suitable for either domestic or industrial machines, and all types of fabrics. You just need to be mindful of what your machine can handle and keep any interfacing out of the seam allowances. It is closed with a binding finish for a smooth lining however, it can be birthed just like I show you in the Oasis Backpack pattern because it is a similar shape. Please review Michelle's video on the Oasis for how to do this if you prefer to birth. 

Finished dimensions of the Parrano are 12" H x 8.5" W x 4" D. 

This pattern is written for intermediate sewists that have basic bagmaking fundamental skills. There is a video tutorial available for this pattern if you prefer visual instruction. Michelle Graham from mgrahamsews walks you through every step in a sew-along style format in the order the pattern is written. If you would like to skip ahead you can but you might miss an important tip! If you follow along with her, you can complete this bag in about 4.5 hours. You will still need to purchase the pattern here to get measurements, etc. as she will never refer to them in the videos.

Please note: Acrylic templates have not been approved for commercial sale for this design. 

Please do not purchase them from anyone that sells templates of this design as they have not been given permission to do so and both you, and the seller would be in violation of intellectual property laws.

In the event that acrylic templates are approved for any KMGhandmade pattern in the future, the approved seller will be clearly linked on my website, under the pattern listing description so you know they have been given permission to sell them and that the designer has been fairly compensated for the original design.

If you like making this pattern a lot and would like sturdier templates for personal use, I recommend purchasing the plastic cutting sheets from the dollar store to trace them out. I do this myself, and it is an inexpensive way to save your pattern pieces rather than reprinting paper ones.
