New pattern alert - meet the TEYA! I'm happy to present you a practical yet stylish cross-body bag pattern. A handbag for everyday use, large enough to hold all your essentials neatly organized and easy to reach. It’s just what you need for a short trip to the town, meeting a friend at your favorite cafe, or quick errands in the neighborhood - especially if you never leave your house without your ipad!

Running an errand in town? Your ipad always on the go with you? Multi-tasking all along? You probably need a hands-free bag, and a fiddle-free way to find your keys and phone. Large enough for all the essentials, but no bulk. The TEYA ipad Crossbody bag will be perfect for you!
From now on, there are two more Teya's in my bag collection, wait - soon three - and I love them! Why? PRACTICAL. SIMPLE. It's true, there are some beautiful bags out there, all for SPECIAL occasions. This one, let me be frank, this one is NOT. It's the EVERYDAY one; the one you always grab first when you leave house. The one which allows you, in a blink of an eye, see if you've got your ipad, phone and keys. No fuss. Ok, maybe a pack off tissues. And that's all. This is the thing I love most with the TEYA and this is why this bag will be used a lot.
- a super convenient, slim-line cross body bag
- the main compartment will generously fit the regular 9.7" ipad size and a few extras
- 2 exterior zippered pockets (perfect for your phone and keys)
- 4 interior slip pockets to keep you organized
- A comfortable adjustable strap, so you can wear it crossbody or over the shoulder
- the wide-open zipper top closure will keep everything in place
FINISHED SIZE: 8.5″ wide, 11″ tall, 2″ depth (plus strap)
Love this little detail. All black on the outside, with pop of color inside!

The PDF pattern file includes a full-size printable sewing pattern with detailed, easy-to-follow instructions with over 100 clear step-by-step photos, diagrams and bonus tips to help you along the way.
This is an intermediate pattern, meaning that it's ideal if you have sewn a simple bag or two before. However, I'm always writing my instructions with my mind on a sewing beginner, and when I say the pattern and tutorial are 'easy-to-follow', I really mean it. It's pictures and tips like these:
There are photos for each step, and clear instructions. Tips included. I want to make your project super easy and fun! And as usually, there's more:
You also learn:
• how to make a recessed zipper panel on a bag (so handy!)
• how to make a welt zipper pocket (the one you'll want to use everywhere from now on!)
• how to make an adjustable bag strap (and how to attach the bag hardware)
• how to add fusible interfacing; with material recommendations
Don't have a zipper foot for sewing zippers? No problem, I included a tip for using your regular foot with zippers too!
And there's more about the pattern:
• All measurements are given in inch and cm.
• Supplies list and interfacing recommendations.
• Printing and pattern-cutting instructions.
Oh, and one thing more: Sew-to-Sell. That's right, you're more than welcome to sell your finished bags you make from this pattern.
Make it in canvas, quilting-weight cotton, home decor fabric or faux leather, mix and match materials as you feel like. Countless variations, cute and practical!
Did I mention it makes a great gift for women of all ages? Or make a men's gadget bag for your man if you stick to black and denim fabric ;) Tailor it exactly to your likes and needs.
Make one for yourself. Or two. Then grab your ipad, phone and keys, toss them in this slim and stylish cross-body handbag – and you're good to go!
Let me know what you make! I love seeing your creations, so post your photo on FB, Instagram or Pinterest and add #sewapplegreen, or simply email me a photo. Let's sew together!
Too many bags? There's no such thing, haha! Have you noticed that there are two different zippers on front and back? Welt zipper pocket on the back, and tabbed zipper pocket on the front. Once you learn how to make those, you'll be making them all the time. Bags, pouches, purses, everywhere!
