If you are new to bag sewing, then you need to look no further for the right bag sewing pattern for you as a beginner. This fun angled crossbody bag is an easy sew and comes in two sizes, so you can make the one that’s perfect for what you need to carry.
The Sand Dollar Crossbody Bag is a stylish and unique crossbody bag for all ages. The two different sizes of the bag feature an adjustable crossbody strap attached to modern trim with D-rings.

The jauntily angled shape is perfect for a day at sea!
