Clarendon Crossbody Wallet



A small bag with loads of compartments, the Clarendon combines the function of a bag with the organization of a wallet.

  • Zipper pocket on the flap, ideal for your phone or other items you need instantly accessible
  • Optional ID pocket
  • Concealed zipper beneath the flap for coins, or other essentials
  • Eight card pockets and a slip pocket keep your credit cards and money handy
  • Lining to hold the larger items a wallet alone cannot, with an additional slip pocket inside
  • Adjustable strap to ensure the bag fits you exactly

6 ” height
9 1/2″ width

Full-color photos and illustrations accompany 16 pages of detailed, tutorial-style instructions. Patterns are included for both fabric and interfacing pieces. Additionally, dimensions are provided for square and rectangle pieces in order to use a rotary cutter and cutting mat. I include fabric and interfacing pattern layouts, and labels to keep your prepared fabric pieces organized while you sew. A team of 10 testers vetted this pattern, testing varied methods and interfacings, editing, revising, and clarifying — ensuring your successful outcome.
