The Aelia Tote bag and the Luna Crossbody bag are your perfect beginner bags and a great step up if you enjoyed making the Harlequin pouches.
The pattern shares instructions as they are both constructed using the same simple method to create two different bags. The bags are similar, but are different sizes and with different straps. When you make one, you’ll immediately know how to make the other.
Perhaps sew the smart tote purse to carry to work, and the slightly smaller crossbody for casual days and nights out. We think you’ll be delighted with them both.
This bag is so quick to sew and comes with a YouTube sew-along video if you need any guidance along the way. You can watch the video for sewing tips even if you don’t have this pattern.
Sizing info: Aelia Tote = 10″ by 13″. Luna Crossbody = 8.5″ by 9″.
