Sunshine Cross Body Bag in Hot Air Balloon Print

I made the Sunshine Cross Body bag, which is a free pdf from Bagstock Sewing Patterns. I love how this one came out. It is a sweet style and not too large or small of a bag. I chose this hot air balloon print and the gray Uncorked fabric print and love them together. The bag features a zippered closure, a front zippered pocket, a zippered interior pocket and I also added a slip pocket inside too.

This bag is currently listed for sale in my Etsy Shop. When it's gone it's gone. I may make more of this style bag, but not in the same fabrics.
I even added a hot air balloon charm zipper pull to the front zippered pocket.

Inside is a zippered pocket and I added a slip pocket with a pen pocket.

This is the back side of the bag.
I made another Sunshine Cross Body bag that I will be posting soon. I also enlarged the pattern so I can try making a larger one too.

  1. Oooh, I like this combo of fabrics, especially with the angled piecing. Very nice! How you managed to scout out a hot air balloon charm is most fortuitous.

  2. i adore this, the way the hot air balloon fabric narrows on top it makes it look like the balloons are flying. the colors are perfect, you made me fall in love with grey again. i like that you add your pen pocket as well. cross body bags are the best. great job

  3. This is a Very pretty bag, and a free pattern too. I might just have to try this one. I like the addition of the slip pocket.

  4. Daryl, this is one cute bag. I’ve never added brads to my bags before, they always look so nice on your bags. Makes them look so finished and professional. What’s the best beginners tool?
