Pattern Description:

This cross body strapped bag might be the "HIPPEST" purse you will ever have!

This pattern has easy to follow instructions and many descriptive photos to make this sewing project a snap!

Just think of all the endless possibilities of sweater colors and texture combinations? The pattern includes instructions for 3 different bag styles.

The inside zippered pocket is great for keeping your keys and other accessories. If you are not into sewing zippers, no worries, there are instructions to sew a simple inside pocket that is great to hold your cell phone, and a nifty place to hold a pen.

Braided fleece, that can also be recycled, is made into a unique and comfortable cross the body strap.
I love wearing this purse!

I have enjoyed creating all my life. I love making things with different textures and colors. My favorite is to recycle an item into something unique and most importantly, useful.
