The Squiffy Sling is a quirky quickie sewing pattern. The clever construction of this cross-body shoulder bag makes it an easy but interesting sew, creating a fun finished bag that you can make as unique as you are!

Simple but stylish, The Squiffy Sling is a great beginner sew. With fun asymmetrical styling but just one pattern piece for outer and lining, it's a quickie!

One of the designer's most popular sewing patterns, this is a great pattern for showing off your interesting fabrics. Use a solid fabric in a bold colour to contrast with your faux leather base overlay, or use a fun design to really make the shape of the bag pop.

The pattern includes instructions on using a half moon magnetic snap, creating a fully lined cross body strap and adding both zip and slip pockets. There are also placement markings for using a different fastener on the pattern piece.

Skill level:
The Squiffy Sling is great for beginner bagmakers.
