The Maggie Switch is a full sewing pattern and video tutorial.

It is a bag that can convert into 5 different ways of wearing it! Using the cleverly designed magnets you can switch up the handles on the move.

Note: If you don't have a rivet press to use the capped riveted magnets, you can also sew down the handles with the included instructions on how to do this!

You can wear this bag:

  • As a backpack.
  • A tote bag with short handles.
  • A tote bag with longer handles front to back on the bag.
  • A tote bag with one handle side to side on the bag.
  • A cross body bag (with a longer strap).

There are also lots of pockets and features to this bag too! On the outside there is a front slip pocket and two side bottle pockets. On the back there is a trolley sleeve and a zipper pocket. There are also of course the strap connectors for the unique handle system too.

Inside you can find a device sleeve, another zipper pocket, glasses pocket and pen slots pocket. You can certainly stayed organised with this bag!

This is a confident beginner bag. It's not a fast sew but it's also not tricky and lots of people have said that it's a lot easier than it looks. It's all straight lines other than the curved top flap.
