Pyck-me-not (pdf)


Lipstick. Check. Cell phone. Check. Ready for a night on the town or fun shopping spree? Yes! But what you are NOT ready for is some culprit just waiting to steal your valued possessions from your easy to reach hand bag.

Introducing Pyck-Me-Not! This gorgeous tear drop shaped bag is just the ticket when you need mobility but still desire a chic bag to complement your attire. Whether it’s a night out to the theatre, a trek across town on the subway or a shopping adventure, with Pyck-Me-Not, your bag is safe and secure and so are your possessions.


Wear Pyck-me-not underneath your evening jacket and it will comfortably rest at your side, out of view from would be pick-pockets. Or, bring it to the front of your body for hands-free, secure shopping! The adjustable cross body strap will ensure it fits for all heights and sizes. And while small in dimensions (8”x6”), you’ll be able to carry your basic necessities and then some.

This is an intermediate skilled sewing project, best suited for someone who has made a few bags previously. But if you have patience and can follow precise instructions, this bag can really be made by anyone. Suggested fabrics for the exterior are vinyl, micro suede, cork and quilted cotton. For the interior we suggest cotton.

Available in 3 sizes: 8″ x 6″ – 9″ x 7″ and 10″ x 8″

Pick up your Pyck-Me-Not today and let the hands-free fun begin! (Well, you can’t sew hands-free, but once the bag is made, you are set)!
