Well Hello, Dollie! Swoon patterns have done it again with another fabulous bag sewing pattern and bonus – this one is free!
A compact crossbody with style, this small bag features an exterior slip pocket, fold over flap with magnetic snap closure and long adjustable strap. Full pattern pieces included, as well as instructions for using both woven and vinyl.
We’ve seen lots of great examples of this bag, and it’s cute in this small size, but remember if you do want to make it larger, simply adjust the scaling on your printer to a larger percentage, say 150% and get the pattern pieces 50% bigger. If you love to sew your bags with vinyl then as usual Swoon has you covered, but if fabric is your style then instructions are provided for that option too – making this pattern perfect for everyone we think.
When you have finished making a Dollie Mini Crossbody Bag it will measure approximately 6” wide by 6” tall by 2.75” deep.
