Buy the Sandhill Sling Bag sewing pattern from Noodlehead. Sew this sling style bag for carrying your daily necessities or for travel. Its convenient sling design allows for easy access when you need it, but it’s out of the way when you don’t. The bag is compact yet roomy enough for the essentials. Choose from a front zippered pocket (View A) or a patch pocket (View B). An adjustable strap makes it easy to wear.
