The Henley Crossbody Purse is a fun sewing project for a stylish and practical purse that can be worn either on the shoulder or crossbody. It also has a cute little carry handle for that Easter Basket look that is so on trend this year!

Instructions are given for two sizes and for a fabric or leather strap - the choice is yours! The Bag can also be made in two different styles - leave out the exterior pockets for a more minimal contemporary look.

The method of construction is a little unusual and designed specifically for bags with an oval base. The bag is fully lined with no exposed seams, no pulling through, and better still, no binding is required!

Work from measurements or from the templates provided - the choice is yours!
