Here’s a small but spacious crossbody bag that converts to a clutch. The Paradigm Crossbody Bag features a main open pouch, one back zipper pocket on the outside, and four different customization options to give you several different looks from the same pattern. This is an awesome beginner bag including learning how to install zippers!

This bag pattern doesn’t require a lot of hardware and is great for those who are dipping their toes into zipper prep. It has multiple options for customization (the flat lay designs lends itself perfectly to applique work), making this mini crossbody bag a versatile and fun pattern to sew.

The outside of this pattern is designed for use with non-fraying fabrics cork, vinyl, thin leather, or kraftex, however, with some additional interfacing and imagination, it can easily be converted to use all cotton throughout. We really like the style with the pretty cotton print for the main body of the bag and cork or vinyl for the styled corner accents – so cute.
