The Zippy Bag is the perfect size for carrying the essentials. It's a cross body bag with zippered pockets on the front, and an interior slip pocket. It's a great purse pattern to showcase your favorite designer's latest fabric collection! Each step is thoroughly explained and I've included computer drawn illustrations of the steps. The pattern includes instructions for installing a top zipper closure, exterior zipper pockets, and interior slip pockets.

Unfortunately, my machine is currently doing a stint at the repair shop. As soon as I can get back to sewing, the Zippy Bag is top on my list! I can tell you this, there are many crossbody bag patterns on the market, however, very few are designed for the Petite figure which is what caught my attention. Instructions appear to be easy enough to follow. I am a seasoned sewer, so I feel confident a person with basic sewing skills will have a successful outcome.
I have made 5 of these. First one was a test and then easy peasy. The only comment I have is if you are making this for a person 5'8" or taller I would add a couple of inches to the strap, this is easy to do. I am buying another for my sister in another state. Don't be afraid of this pattern, you will be surprised at the results.
This pattern is great with very easy to follow instructions. I am really enjoying putting this bag together.
The instructions are comprehensive, easy to follow and clearly illustrated.
Gorgeous pattern, exactly what I needed, thank you
