All posts may contain affiliate links.


This zipper purse crossbody bag gives you the chance to show your colors! Pick from your stash to create the striped section for the front zipper pocket. Maybe red and black like a pirate!


Grace O’Malley was one of the most famous female pirates in Ireland. Many Irish see her as a hero. 

The Bag: Our example bag is made with decorative glitter vinyl in strips you can pick and arrange yourself, and natural cork. You can use any number of different fabrics and materials for your own custom design. The front has a deep slip pocket and the back has a zipper pocket. The inside has a zipper pocket and a slip pocket.

If you like, you can watch the video tutorial I made for it as well. That is free for everyone to watch. The video does not give cutting instructions or instructions on how to interface the fabrics. That will be included with 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 Ipad or computer as you sew the bag. The pattern comes in a separate PDF. The pattern pieces are color 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.
