This pattern has now been retired and is no longer available. Please see my other patterns in my shop.
The Ada Clutch and Crossbody bag Sewing pattern was such a fun pattern to design and then testing was even better. It was so amazing to see what ideas, fabrics and changed came from the testing process.
I feel that each bag that has been made is so different even if it’s just the fabric choice.
This pattern is so simple and fun that it’s perfect for beginners, but interesting enough for advanced beginners and beyond.
