Hello everyone! I'm super, super excited to have a chance to show off my newest crossbody bag pattern to you today, yay!!!
I've been working on this bag for months and have gone through at least six unsuccessful prototypes before I finally landed on this design. All that work though was totally worth is as I absolutely love this bag.
Luisa finishes at 10" wide x 9" tall x 3" deep. And, the addition of a hidden zipper pocket on the front, slip pocket on the back, zipper pocket in the lining, as well as a main zipper closure and adjustable strap makes for a super useful, perfectly sized everyday purse.
Materials needed to make Luisa Bag:
fabric A (main exterior fabric) – ¾ yard
fabric B (contrasting exterior bottom + strap) – ½ yard
fabric C (lining) – ¾ yard
interlining fabric (canvas, denim, or some other heavier weight fabric) – ½ yard
SF 101 interfacing (or other medium weight fusible interfacing of choice) – 2 yards
one - 12” long metal or nylon zipper
one - 8” long metal or nylon zipper
one - 6” long metal or nylon zipper
two - 1” rectangle or circle strap rings
one - 1” rectangle strap slider
five - 7mm rivets (optional)
