The cycling culture in Singapore boomed amid the COVID-19 pandemic and our family soon caught the cycling fever over the last school holidays. We got ourselves new bicycles and quickly realised that we needed somewhere to put our essential items while on the go. This Journey Pouch was developed to meet just that need.
COMPACT and streamlined, this little pouch will fit most phones with ample space for snack bars for that quick energy boost. Options for mesh pockets and interior zipper pockets are provided, depending on your needs. It features an adorable and functional 3D front zipper pocket spacious enough for your keys and our Bloom Mini Wallet fits perfectly!
For those who prefer a little more room, you will be pleased to know that this versatile design easily converts to a crossbody or a waist bag with a detachable strap in the REGULAR size! On top of the two sizes to choose from, the pattern will also introduce you to two different methods of finishing - the binding and birthing methods. Both techniques are commonly used in bag making and they each have their own merits.
I hope you will enjoy making them as much as I do!
