This pattern shows you how to easily make a men's tough crossbody bag. It has an adjustable crossbody strap and magnetic snap closure. A generous size, great for everyday use, large enough to accommodate an iPad and all his essentials and strong enough for the hardest working man!
Fully lined throughout with a feature phone pocket on the front. The instructions walk you through, in simple steps, how to construct the roomy box cornered bag including how to create adjustable webbing straps, and attaching magnetic clasp closures. The bag also has an anti-theft strap to attach your keys
I made this example up in tweed, but it is suitable for most medium weight fabrics including tweeds, denim, medium weight cottons and furnishing fabrics. Make from just half a yard each outer and lining.
This is an easy to moderate pattern. Suitable for anyone who has tried a few patterns before
