The UpDown Bag is two bags in one. One bag can have its adjustment cords pulled down to create a practical, roomy bag. The cords can also be cinched up revealing a smaller, stylish gathered bag. The UpDown bag has a height of 14" when the cords are pulled down, a 21” wide bottom, and a 13” wide top opening. The bag features custom-sized inside pockets, unique cord-end covers, a hook-and-loop closure, and comfortable double handles. The convenient exterior back pocket can hold practical items like keys. As with all Square Rose patterns, “Creative Options” are included with the instructions for adding more fabrics, creative embellishments, and a single shoulder strap.
