Veris Crossbody Bag sewing pattern

This spacious, practical and stylish crossbody or shoulder bag is ideal for all occasions. It has a top zipper closure to keep all of your bits and pieces safely inside. The bag has two very practical exterior slip side pockets, which can be supplemented with zipper pockets (optional).

Inside there is a zipper pocket and a slip pocket. Of course you can mix and match the lining pockets to fit the bag out with your favorite style of interior pockets.

A key strap with a swivel hook is also a practical part of the bag’s interior. This is a great idea to snap on your keys, and then if (when) they fall to the bottom of the bag, a quick tug on the key strap and there they are! The crossbody strap is approx. 150 cm/59″ long and it is adjustable. The bag can also be worn as a shoulder bag.

Recommended materials:
Various types of fabrics are suitable to make this bag. Cotton, leatherette, cork, vinyl and all possible combinations of these materials can be used. This design makes the interesting prints of the fabric used on its middle part stand out – ideal for a favorite feature or large print fabric.
