Crossbody Clutch Purse Pattern with a smart phone pocket
This purse design features your favourite fabric on the outer front pocket while the front edges and the back are made with medium weight fabric, making this purse very durable. This crossbody bag you will make is perfect for a casual day out or night out, when you don't want to carry a big heavy bag. Just put your mobile phone in the front pocket closed with a twist lock and tuck your cash and cards in the pockets inside. You can carry a compact powder and lipstick and (or) a folded grocery bag made from a DesignBlanche pattern in this bag. It can also be a clutch wallet when folded in half, using two magnetic snap buttons after removing the long strap. When you carry a bigger bag, just put this folded wallet in without needing to move your items to another bag.
There are 3 zippered pockets, one on the outer front (for the foldable option) and another on the outer back and third one inside the bag across from the slip pocket or the card pockets. The bag itself closes with a zipper on the top as well. The interior is fully lined and interfaced for shape and durability. The strap is adjustable and long enough to cross your body.
Small sized purse; about 8" (20.32cm) wide, 8" (20.32cm) tall, 29" - 52'' (73.66 - 132cm) long cross body strap Large sized purse; about 9" (22.86cm) wide, 10" (25.4cm) tall, 29" - 52'' (73.66 - 132cm) long cross body strap

Welcome to DesignBlanche. I am DesinBlanche designer Catherine. I love design & art and enjoy making something beautiful & functional. Once I started making a bag in a quilting class about 20 years ago, I was hooked. Since then I have come this far. This is my creative outlet and helps me relax and relieve stress. It's such a satisfying activity as a middle aged woman :)
