Mini Crossbody Bag sewing pattern
This is the Mini Crossbody Bag pdf sewing pattern from the designer Michelle Patterns.
This petite bag has been made big enough to house a small wallet, some other little items, and your phone, so your essentials and a little bit more!
By making this bag in a fold-over style it makes it easy to see and reach inside while you are still wearing the bag.
The flap is a great place to highlight a snippet of a fabric or if you wish you can sew the bag with just one fabric. The flap closes securely with two 14mm magnetic snaps.
In the back of the bag, there is a pocket that spans the whole width of the bag. The pocket has a hand-size opening making it a fantastic place to keep your phone all tucked away securely. However, it’s still easy to reach when you need to get hold of that phone to answer a text or call.
The strap is attached to the back with two swivel clips.
The designer rates her project as suitable for an intermediate sewer. You will need to have made bags with straps before and be able to install magnetic snaps and be able to sew box bottoms.
When you have finished making this Mini Crossbody Bag it will measure when closed approximately 5.5” high by 8” wide by 1.5” deep front to back with a 22” strap drop (without clips).
What’s needed to make a Mini Crossbody Bag:
- 1/3 yard of exterior fabric (FQ ok),
- 50” long by 2” wide fabric piece for the strap,
- 1/3 yard of lining fabric (FQ ok),
