Blue Calla Coneflower Cross Body Sewing Pattern
The Coneflower cross body bag is a great, medium-sized unisex bag. It is an easier project, perfect for confident beginners.
It has an exterior zippered pocket on one side and a main flap closure with two magnetic snaps, concealing a hidden pocket perfect for a regular iPad. You can carry the bag with the flap towards your body for added security or carry it with the flap pointing outwards.
For the bag's interior, there are two slip pockets and one zippered pocket.
The bag can be made in a variety of fabric types: fabric, cork, vinyl or waxed canvas. You can interface your bag with fusible fleece for a softer structure or with foam for a more structured look, according to your personal preference.
