The Aloha Satchel features a fun patchwork top panel, backpack type straps, and a button closure. I hope you enjoy this pattern!


For this project I used Aloha Girl fabric by Fig Tree fabric which I’ve been hoarding, and some natural canvas for the bottom and straps.


Fabric Requirements:

  • 1/2 yd. Lining Fabric
  • 1/2 yd. Canvas (Bag bottom and straps)
  • 1/4 yd. Outside Fabric
  • 1 mini-charm pack (Or 42-2.5”x2.5” squares)
  • 1/2 yd. batting or fusible fleece
  • 1 decorative button
  • 6.5” long x 1/4”wide elastic strip

I used canvas for the straps as well, not only because they’re cute, but also durable.


I made this for my 10 year old daughter, so I attached the straps a bit higher, but if you make it for a teen or adult you may want to attach the bottoms a bit lower. There are instructions for strap placement for both child/adult sizes in the PDF download!

I also added a small interior pocket to hold extra goodies! Aren’t these flowers cute!?


I also added this cute floral wood button to finish it off!


And that’s it guys! I love this project so much and I hope you do too! If you make this project make sure to share it on social media with #thealohasatchel so I can see what you make!
