The Love Affair Crossbody Bag PDF Sewing Pattern is easy and quick to sew up with minimal hardware required.   You will find that the crossbody bag is small and slim with enough room to carry your essentials.  Its charming retro design and simple lines make it minimalist, classic and modern.  This is a great go-to-bag for a night out on the town, lunch with your girl friends, or out and about at a festival.

Simple and functional, the Love Affair Crossbody features a thin removable crossbody strap allowing for a chain strap if  desired.  Strap connectors have been designed to lay towards the back of the bag.   An optional curvy slip pocket is located on the back which can be moved to the front making it a focal point.  Two magnetic snaps secure the back pocket.   A top zipper closure keeps all your essentials safe and secure.   On the interior, faux leather trims a double sectioned slip pocket with a zippered  pocket on the opposite wall.

The design of the Love Affair Crossbody PDF Sewing Pattern lends itself to be whatever your artisan eyes see:  elegant and luxe, traditional, or minimalist.  Just check out the pictures of the creatively made Love Affair crossbody bags sewn by my team of testers which are listed below the list of supplies.  They will inspire your creative juices.
