Mountain Saddle Bags Pattern


Buy the Hardware Here!

The Mountain Saddle Bags are modelled after an actual leather saddle bag I used to use on while riding my old horse, Kai. I’ve added some strapping detail to add a bit of interest. These will make up nicely in quilting cottons or tweed. They can be made in 2 sizes and feature a nicely shaped side gusset, a front flap with press lock closure, an adjustable shoulder strap, and an internal zipper pocket. The Decovil Light and foam stabilizer add nice structure to the bag and create a very professional finish.

My pattern is a fresh look at a classic bag shape, the saddle bag. I’ve used some stabilizers and hardware that might be new to you, but will be wonderful additions to help you create the firmness and shape often not provided in a beginner pattern. In my video, I will show you how to layout your fabric if you have a directional print, and I will discuss some options and changes you can make if you have different interfacing and stabilizers available. While I assemble the bag, I will demonstrate hardware installation for you, and show you how a bag that might normally be considered intermediate, can be easily finished by a beginner bag maker.

Cutting instructions provided for rotary cutter, ruler and mat to cut rectangular fabric pieces. There are pattern templates provided for rounded pieces. Pattern instructions are in both imperial & metric.
