This printed pattern is the same as the instand download PDF, however it is packaged in a clear recyclable bag and perfect for gifting!



A petite but roomy crossbody bag that converts to a clutch. Features four different customization options, one main open pouch and one back zipper pocket.


Finished measurements are 9” (22.75cm) wide x 6” (15.25cm) tall with a 2” (5cm) base.


Great beginner bag!


This pattern includes full step-by-step instructions as well as measurements in both metric and imperial. Watch the sewalong video here.


This bag pattern doesn't require a lot of hardware and is great for those who are dipping their toes into zipper prep. It has multiple options for customization (the flat lay designs lends itself perfectly to applique work), making this mini crossbody a versatile and fun pattern.


The outside of this pattern is designed for use with cork, vinyl, thin leather, or kraftex, however with some additional interfacing and imagination it can easily be converted to use all cotton throughout.
