Easy Riders - Sewing Project

 Here we thought we'd share with you all a fun sewing project!
These bags are great and were found in a vintage book, 'Easy-going Sewing'.

We've included the patterns and instructions for two styles of bags.
The Blue bag fits snugly over the carrier, you can also pick it up and it becomes a satchel.

The smaller yellow bag loops over the handlebars and can be worn with a belt. The loops can also be snapped together to form a handle.

Happy Sewing!
