U Boho Bag

 

My latest pattern is how to make this U Boho Bag.  I call it the U Boho Market bag because of the U design in it. Feel free to use a variety of colors to really give it the Boho feel. It is made up of a front and back panel with the sides and bottom of the bag connecting the front and back.

Not only do I have written instructions, but I also have a video too, so make sure you check out the video.
