Thomas Crown

The time has come my little friends… time to release the last pattern for our Fall collection! We’d be super sad except for the fact that we’re crazy about this bag. The last of our vintage inspired bags comes straight out of the 1960s. And apparently when we think 1960s, we think bowler bags. And when we think of bowler bags, we think of bowler hats. And when we think of bowler hats, we think about Thomas Crown. Did you follow all of that? We hope so!

And why, yes… we also think it would be fun to make another nod to 1960s culture and talk like Austin Powers for the rest of this blog post. Because we’re groovy, baby. And you know you love it, baby. And because this bag is beyond, baby. Okay, that’s probably enough. Probably. You’ve been warned.

Thomas Crown is shaped like a usual bowler bag – beautifully curved lines and substantial rounded handles. You can add optional cording inside the handles for even more weight, if you’d like, baby.

Ours also feature fun gusseted sides that add a pop of color. Surprising, baby.

Finally, the outer bag also features a hidden pocket, perfect for your keys or phone. And it fits the new (smaller) iPhone 6, baby.

The lining is divided into two halves with a super cool and functional center zipper pocket. There is also another zipper pocket on one side of the lining and a customizable divided pocket on the other side. Storage galore, baby.

For the above bag, we used another Timeless Treasures Mosaic fabric but this time in beautiful purples and blues (C-8616) and paired it with the fun Landing Net Royal of By the Sea by Dover Hill for Benartex.

Thomas Crown also looks very dapper in beautiful bold solids. Totally mod, baby.

The PDF pattern has 15 pages, over 90 (!!) color photos and 4 pattern pieces. You can buy it via instant download in our Etsy or Craftsy shops for only $9. The finished size is about 10” x 16” x 5”.

Since we’re done releasing all of the patterns from our Fall collection, that can only mean one thing. It’s almost time for our next free pattern!! Our first free pattern, Wine Totes, was a huge success – over 2,000 downloads on Craftsy! – and we think our next pattern could be just as big. It’s another wine related item and should be perfect to make as a holiday gift. Some come back next month and check it out!
