  • Compass Crossbody Bag

    This pattern is great for showing off your amazing zipper pulls. It is a roomy bag that features a water bottle sleeve, split slip pocket and zipper pocket and a keyminder on the inside. Includes instructions to make a small pocket to the left of the exterior zipper or a large pocket to the center of the zipper.

  • SuperPockets Add-On Pattern

    With this pattern, you will learn how to make the Compass Crossbody Bag with full edge-to-edge pockets on both sides. You will still need the full PDF pattern to complete the bag. This just gives you another option.

  • Clip & Zip Wristlet

    A best seller at local markets, this little wristlet features a unique 8-card slot slip pocket inside and is roomy enough for a large smartphone. A quick make that you will have so much fun sewing up. Check out Lauren Mormino making one on her YouTube Channel, Sew Whatever!
