HailieJade Mini Convertible Backpack Crossbody (with video)

All posts may contain affiliate links.


Genius! This versatile bag has it all in a small package. The single adjustable strap means it can be worn as a crossbody or easily converted to wear as a backpack. Great pockets means this bag has space for it all!


Mini is a convertible backpack crossbody bag with minimal hardware.  This is the second design of the HailieJade collection.  The “Mini” version has a magnetic large edge lock closure with hidden front zipper pockets, a slip pocket for your phone with a flap and an interior sunglasses pocket.  The sides have a snap closure to pinch the sides in when you carry a little and they open up when you need to carry a lot.

The strap has two adjusters which allow for shortening when using for either a backpack or a crossbody.  

If you are a visual learner, you’ll be happy to know that included in this pattern is a full video tutorial AND sectional videos as well when you only need a little help.
