Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Use sewing machine

Pattern Description:

This is the perfect bag to carry all day! I love to use this bag when I travel with easy accent to my cell phone, boarding passes and other necessary documents you need to access quickly. The strap is long enough to use the bag as a Cross-Body Bag, leaving your hands free.

This bag can be made in about an hour! Accent piping really adds to the design of the bag together with the outside zipper pocket with ribbon accent around the zipper itself.

Don't be afraid to try the zipper pocket. I have detailed every step of the process with pictures for each step. Of course, you can make the bag without the outside zipper pocket or piping if your prefer.

Be sure to post pictures of your finished bag for all to see. These make great gifts for your friends, teachers and family for the holidays or birthdays.
