All posts may contain affiliate links.


A versatile zipper purse to be worn crossbody. A free pattern with a sewing video tutorial. Optional applique details.


Elizabetha was a river pirate in England and was accused of stealing from ships traveling on the river Thames. She was hanged for piracy.  

The Bag: This cute bag can be made in many combinations of cork, vinyl or fabric and with artwork of glitter vinyl or non-fraying fabrics of your choice. The back has a zipper pocket. The inside lining also has a zipper pocket. The bag is fully lined.

If you like, you can watch the video tutorial I made for it as well.  The video does not give cutting instructions or instructions on how to interface the fabrics. That will all be found in the full pattern download.

The Pattern: You can download and print this pattern with two descriptions. One version with no photos for cheaper printing, and the other with photos that you can look at on your I-pad or computer as you sew the bag. The pattern comes in a separate PDF. The pattern pieces are colour-coded according to the fabrics you use.

Please note this is a digital download PDF file, not a paper pattern. Please download immediately after check out.
