This is the Christine Sling Crossbody Bag sewing pattern with an adjustable accessory strap.
The Christine Sling is a small compact bag perfect for everyday use. It has simple, clean lines with versatile styling and a modern twist. As the “Sling” part of the name entails, this bag is meant to be worn across the chest or swung around the mid-back. However, with a quick change of the accessory strap, the Christine can go to a full cross-body or even as a belt bag with adjusted length. There are so many ways to enjoy this design!
This bag includes instructions for two separate views. View A includes piping and accent fabric for some fun raw-edge contrasting looks. View B uses the same main fabric throughout for a sleeker appearance and comes together very quickly without the piping. Both views have a zipper and slip pockets which are the same for the exterior and the lining. They are the perfect size to keep your phone or keys accessible. You can even omit the pockets altogether on the exterior for a classic look or double up the zipper pockets for extra security.
The lining uses bias tape to keep seams clean while also providing extra structure. Both views also include a wide accessory strap for comfort and a D-ring to hold your ear pods or sunglasses. Use contrasting fabric or even some pre-made webbing for a fashionable statement strap!

A removable and adjustable strap to use as a sling, cross-body, or fanny pack,
Four pockets – one zipper and one slip pocket on both the interior and the exterior,
