And the best part this is an easy to sew pattern, that is perfect for a confident beginner/ intermediate sewer. There is a sewalong video so you can watch one being made and follow along. Note – binding is used on the lining of the bag.
When you have finished making your very own Lilly Crossbody Bag it will measure approximately 7.5″ (19 cm) tall by 8.6″ (22 cm) wide by 1.18″ (3 cm) deep.
The designer says that quilting cotton or canvas is a great fabric choice for this bag. Vinyl/ faux leather is what the designer used but it requires a sewing machine that can handle multiple layers.

- 1/4 yard of lining fabric,
- 1/4 yard for accent, piping and straps (this is optional),
- 1/4 yard of interfacing,
- One zipper 11.8″ (30 cm) long,
- One zipper slider,
- One magnet snap,
- 6.3″ (16 cm) of elastic ribbon,
- Two circle rings, d rings or rectangle rings,
