Tower Cross Body Bag with My Modifications

I made another Tower Cross Body Bag (Sew Sweetness pattern) and made several modifications. I love playing with patterns and making them different and better (in my opinion). I really like the changes I made to this one.

My changes are:
  • Sewed the strap using 2 fabrics
  • Added a narrower accent red color to the top of the bag
  • Added an accent brown color to the bottom of the bag
  • Used a magnetic snap closure instead of a zipper closure (the bag opens faster, easier and wider with the snap)
  • Boxed the corners instead of sewing darts
  • Eliminated the tabs at the upper sides (which are cute, but didn't work with my changes)
  • Placed the back zipper pocket up higher on the bag
  • Added a divided slip pocket inside 
  • Used fleece rather than foam
  • And I sewed my zipper pockets differently than the instructions
The bag body measures 9" x 9" x 3"
This bag looks great in the Southwest Petroglyph print.

And I include a free matching Little Wallet when you purchase the bag,

Little Wallet with 3 pockets for cards (the last pocket is deeper and can hold cash that is folded).



Back of the bag has a zippered pocket; perfect for holding your phone or keys.



The Little Wallet fits in the pocket and there is a pen pocket and the bag closes with a magnetic snap. Another zipper pocket inside the bag.


This bag is for sale in my Etsy Shop and has had the most views of any of my current listings. As always, it is a one-of-a-kind bag that can never be duplicated exactly, but can be made custom in your choice of colors. Contact me if you want this bag made for you in different colors.
