Pattern Description:

The Metro Hipster is a cross-body bag to get you where you're going with style and functionality. The front of the bag has a roomy bellows pocket with a top flap and hardware closure. The top of the bag has a recessed zipper with a shoulder strap attached to the front and back allowing the bag to hang close to the body. Inside, the lining has a padded pocket, sized to fit most iPads, to keep your tablet secure with room to spare for a magazine and personal items.

My 14-page printable PDF instructions include color photographs, detailed diagrams, glossary and all the assembly directions you'll need to make the Metro Hipster Bag.
