sand dollar crossbody bag

A stylish and unique crossbody bag for all ages. It comes in 2 sizes and features an adjustable crossbody strap attached to modern trim with D-rings. The small size is perfect for on the go without a wallet and a few necessities and the large size is roomy enough for a standard wallet and other items. 

I hope you enjoy my pattern!

This pattern is for the Beginner Sewist. You'll need to know how to install zippers, determine interfacing requirements and optionally install rivets. Don't let this discourage you ... I have a Facebook group (JOIN HERE) that I'm active in and have very helpful members.
