The Sunday Afternoon Hipster Bag is another very popular bag from this amazingly talented designer.
It’s a simple, quick-to-make hipster / cross-body / shoulder bag and the pattern comes in 2 sizes. The one shown in the tutorial is the bigger one which is suitable for taller women while the smaller one (pattern also included) is 1 ½ inches shorter, which is suitable for shorter women like the designer, or if you just prefer a smaller bag.
We especially love some of the simple design touches on this one, such as the double-sided strap where you can use two different fabrics to co-ordinate with the panels on the bag.
The bag is meant for casual wear where the size will not weigh you down while shopping, cycling or strolling in town. Yet it has ample room for your phones, clutch, keys and even a small book you’re currently reading. You may skip the recessed zipper part and apply magnetic snap, buttons, velcro, etc. for a quicker job.
The Sunday Afternoon Hipster Bag is ideal for an intermediate/confident beginner who has basic skills in sewing and has completed a few simple bags.
The approximate finished dimensions for the bag shown are 16 inches (40 cm) high by 10 inches (25 cm) long by 2 inches (5 cm) wide.
