Here’s a nice and easy fat quarter friendly sewing pattern for a simple crossbody or shoulder bag with adjustable strap where the designer has included beginner-friendly options.
The ‘Just in time for tea’ bag is the perfect starter bag to set you on your bag journey or to add to your pattern collection. It is made using minimal materials and with options you can choose, you can make the bag to suit your confidence level.
This beginner-friendly pattern has the following features:
- a magnetic snap top closure and a nice large opening
- OR optional recessed zipper closure,
- optional outside zipper pocket,
- adjustable strap (fabric or vinyl),
- a separate base piece in a different fabric which can be vinyl, cork, or canvas, cotton of your choice (solid or non-direction print recommended for the base),

When you have finished making yourself a Just In Time For Tea Cross Body Bag it will measure approximately 9″ (23 cm) by 10″ (25.5 cm) by 3″ (8 cm). Measurements are taken at the widest part.
