PDF DOWNLOAD SEWING PATTERN - Crossbody Cell Phone Purse - by Celia Roberts

PDF Patterns - I am sorry, but NO REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES can be given for electronic files due to the nature of the product.

Fat Quarter Friendly. Finished Size - Approximately 5” x 7”. See additional supplies required to make a finished purse below.

This listing is for a PDF SEWING PATTERN, not a finished product!

This pattern was designed with the on-the-go minimalist in mind. I designed this hands-free, lightweight purse to carry only my essentials to the county fair and quilt shows. At the time there were no simple patterns on the market to fit my needs. Multiple pockets allow for organization and easy access. The in and out center pocket allows easy access to your cell phone; with the additional security of the button tab for when your phone is not in use. The pleated back pocket gives additional room for bulky items. The secure zipper pouch holds your id and credit cards. And behind the zipper pouch is an additional pocket to hold business cards or store perk cards. The back pleated pocket was designed to hold bulky keys or sunglasses.

Sewing skill level is advance beginner ... meaning you know how to use your sewing machine, but want to try out the zipper foot attachment.

If you have always wanted to try to make a purse this is the pattern for you. It was designed as an introduction to purse sewing basics. I teach youth sewing classes and wanted to teach them something a little more sophisticated. Eight pages of easy to follow instructions and computer-generated black and white illustrations will guide you to success.


Don't want to purchase additional fabric to make the strap and want to make it adjustable? Light weight durable plastic swivel hooks and hardware kits are available in the shop for US customers only.

Loved this cute pattern! Easy to follow instructions and quick to make. It was just what I was looking for in a bag to take my cell phone, iPod, earbuds and keys to the gym. I made a self fabric strap, I didn't need it to be adjustable I changed the button to a magnetic snap AWESOME PATTERN!!
