Surprise! Cross Body Bag Pattern FREE Today Only (RRP $6.95)


We haven't done this for a while.  Let's get back on track!

We like to reward our readers with occasional giveaways of some of our paid patterns.  However, I just realised we haven't done this in quite a while.

To get things back on track. we're giving away one of our most popular bag patterns, the Cross Body Bag Pattern usually sold for $6.95.  Yup, that's right, the pattern will be FREE, but for this Sunday, June 16th only.

You can carry everything you need and stay hands-free with this handy Cross Body Bag pattern.  Go fancy with smart hardware and adjustable strap, or keep it simple without these optional extras.

With both open and zipper pockets front and back, inside and outside, you can keep everything organized and in its place.  Roomy enough to carry a tablet but smart enough to use as a purse.

There's step by step video will show you how to get a great finish in easy steps, and all the options you can consider along the way.  The video here just gives you an overview of the bag.  If you go for the pattern, there is a full 30-minute step by step video to show you how to sew it and which discusses the options you can pick.

    I think this is such a cute bag and just the right size. I also think you are very generous to us for giving us this opportunity to have such a beautiful bag. I chose a black and white herringbone linen with some black and white flowers on black for the lining. The purse will be like the lining and an opposite black and white flowers on white fabric. Can’t wait to see it turn out!
