The Pixie Crossbody Bag is a compact medium-sized crossbody bag with jaunty angled pockets front, back and inside. It works well in all fabrics and materials and comes with a full-length video tutorial too.
It’s the perfect unisex pattern to sew for your guy. It really can be perfect for you, but pick the right materials and it also sews up into the ideal man-bag. As soon as my hubby saw the pictures of this bag in the cork he said that would be great for when I’m running errands for you. (He’s a good guy!)
The Pixie is suitable for fabric, cork, or vinyl and is great for domestic machines. It’s perfect for today’s environment.
At the moment we are not carrying too much around, but we do need somewhere to keep sanitizer and masks handy. Phone bag a bit too small? Crossbody a bit too big? This is the perfect happy medium bag that has space for everything you need without being bulky.
Think you can’t make a zip on the curve? Now you can. It’s attached straight to the fabric, then bend the fabric round and hey, your zipper is on a curve! It’s a really easy zip insertion method.
The Pixie Crossbody Bag has the following great features:-
An easy method for adding a zip on the curve,
A front pocket for masks,
A pocket engineered to hold a mini hand sanitizer bottle,
Large zip pocket to back,
Inside pockets for phone and pens,
Templates for cute Pixie zip pullers,
Generous main compartment that comfortably fits your wallet, phone, kindle and keys,
Adjustable crossbody strap.
