The HailieJade Mini 2 is a convertible backpack crossbody with minimal hardware and comes with a video tutorial. It’s ideal for beginners and it’s so cute too!


Mini is a convertible backpack crossbody bag with minimal hardware. This is the second design of the HailieJade collection. The “Mini 2” version is almost the same as the original HailieJade Mini but it does NOT have the hidden front zipper pockets. This makes it quicker and easier to sew for beginners.

It has a magnetic large edge lock closure, a slip pocket for your phone with a flap, and an interior sunglasses pocket. This is a great little backpack for beginners to sew with the added bonus of the convertible feature, so you can wear it as a traditional backpack, or as a crossbody bag too. Ideal for a busy day out.

There is a video tutorial included to guide you every step of the way.
