Tower Cross Body Bag in Pink/Purple Batik Print

I made another Tower Cross Body bag (a free Sew Sweetness pattern). I made a few changes to this bag, even more than the first Tower I made.

I didn't add the accent top part of the bag at all. I decided to make a snap closure instead of a zipper closure (mainly because I sew my zipper pockets differently and that changed something in the construction of the bag), I boxed the corners instead of sewing darts, I made the strap with 2 fabrics, I added a divided slip pocket inside the bag.

The bag measures 10" wide x 9 1/2" high x 3 1/2" deep.

I just listed this in my Etsy Shop.SOLD!

I boxed the corners instead of sewing darts.

Zippered pocket on bag (this was the front of the bag, but could be worn so it is the back of the bag).

I put in the zippered pocket and added a divided slip pocket with a pen pocket too. I like the magnetic snap so you can open the bag really wide. 

Pin It Now!


  1. You are just whipping these out left and right. Will you have any fall craft shows. My best local show is cancelled because of COVID. Haven't heard about the other. I am ok if they cancel also. I will stay busy enough.

  2. love the bag and great fabric. i was surprised when you mentioned boxing the corners instead of sewing darts. i can't even visualize what dart corners are like since i only think of darts for women garments. What you did looks great.
