The Lily Pleated Cross Body Bag - PDF Sewing Pattern

$8.00 CAD
By purchasing this listing you are not purchasing a finished bag. This is a PDF sewing pattern to make the bag pictured.

This pleated cross body bag is a larger sized bag with tons of storage space, some great accents in vinyl or faux leather and 2 strap options: either adjustable or double straps.

It is best to use a walking foot to make sew the vinyl parts of this bag. If you do not have a walking foot, you can always sew with a layer of tissue paper between the foot of your machine and the vinyl and then carefully tear off when your seams have been sewn. However, I highly recommend a walking foot!!

For the interior of the bag, I give instructions for the zippered pocket and the slip pockets, installation of a magnetic snap and creating an adjustable strap.

This bag uses sew-in interfacing to give the bag structure (I use duck canvas).
