[UPDATE: This pattern used to be available for free from Craftsy, however as a result of the Craftsy Pattern Purge in December 2018, it was removed by them and is no longer available on Craftsy. We did contact the pattern designer to find another download source for you, but sadly she didn’t allow us to share the pattern with you.]
It’s FREE pattern time again from Sew Modern Bags. This cute little sturdy bag measures just 5½” wide by 7½” high approximately, and is just perfect for your phone, a wallet with some cards, keys, a pen and some cash. Or whatever it is that you need to grab when you run out of the house for some errands.
Instead of carrying a great big bag you’ll love this lightweight alternative. It’s perfect for a quick trip to the store or a jog around the park. The pattern is fat quarter friendly and scrap happy, and although it’s marked as an intermediate skill level pattern, the On-The-Go Crossbody bag from On the Go Patterns is also perfect for the confident beginner.
There’s a zipper pocket inset across the back, and pockets or dividers on the inside to keep you organised. It also makes use of webbing to use as a ready made strap, but of course you can make one in fabric to match the bag if you prefer.
