The Sakura Bag is a quick, simple, stylish, Japanese inspired bag designed for the beginner sewist. The Sakura Bag pattern is designed especially for use with these interchangeable half moon bamboo handles (sold separately) and these interchangeable large horse shoe bamboo handles (sold separately). The handles can be removed from one Sakura Bag and then attached to another Sakura Bag. So you could make a Sakura Bag for each outfit - one for shopping, another for work and another for a night out. Detach the handles from the ‘work’ bag, attach the same pair of handles to the ‘night out’ bag - and you’re set to go.
