Perfect in A set With the Kalina Mini Wallet
It makes a great set with the popular Kalina Mini Wallet pattern:
And I pulled out my Kalina mini wallet pattern and made one to pop into the NEA crossbody bag. These two are made for each other 😊
Just The right Size
FINISHED SIZE of the bag is approximately 7″ wide, 8″ tall, ¾″ deep (17.5 x 20 x 2 cm)
You can choose between two back sides: the classic (and super handy) zipper pocket back, or a plain back with no pockets if you prefer to simplify whenever possible.
A Great UNISEX Pattern For Sewing To Sell
This is a unisex pattern, suitable for both men and women. Make it for yourself in your favorite designer prints, one for your husband in suede, or in petrol and grey cotton or in faux leather. You can easily sew it as a mens' bag, kids bag, or make a lot of these to stock up your handmade shop - these convenient small bags sell quickly!
When a bag is so cute that you decide to keep it for yourself. (THIS!) One of our testers, Maria @miacreates got her first order in the moment she showed a sneak peek of her new make, during the pattern testig period. Meaning even the pattern wasn't in the market yet, let alone the finished bag! BUT, she wanted to keep it for herself, so she decided to make an identical new one for that customer. But then, a new order for NEA came in at the same time. Looks like she's got some more sewing to do today.
Quick to sew + requires little materials + cute and practical = a perfect sew-to-sell pattern!
The pattern is available in my pattern shop here:
This pattern includes a comfortable detachable and adjustable strap, so you can wear it crossbody or over the shoulder.
