The Quick No Zip Cross Body Bag

Another great bag pattern from ChrisW Designs, called The Quick No Zip Cross Body Bag. And the pattern is ON SALE!!! Free video tutorial too!

This bag measures 5 1/2" wide x 9 1/2" H x 1 1/2" deep.

I made mine artsy using batik scraps, hand dyed fabric, quilting and yarn couching, plus some buttons and crystals for bling.

20% off NO CODE NEEDED for ONE week - Ends Midnight Thursday 29th June 2023 AUSTRALIAN Eastern Standard Time.

The bag includes a key pocket on the front of the bag under the flap.

You can see the size of the bag here one me. It's small, but has room for the essentials.

Close up of my artsy flap, quilted, buttons, couched yarn.

I used the batik quilted piece to create the inside card pocket, which will hold a few cards. It's hard to see in the photos, but the pocket has a nice shape curved higher on one side.

The instructions call for an adjustable strap, but I didn't have the small size slider, so I made a fixed strap instead, and lots of rivets.

The key pocket under the flap on the front.

Back of bag has Christine's signature phone pocket for quick and easy access. You can see the quilting I did on the hand dyed fabric here too.

Check out all these videos and the tester bags to get ideas of fabrics to use. They all made some great Quick No Zip Bags using a variety of materials too. Grab the pattern while it is on sale! It is quick to sew (as long as you don't make an artsy quilted one like I did, lol)!!!

Pin It Now!
