Corcoran Crossbody Bag – with video tutorial

(7 customer reviews)




Styled after a messenger bag, the Corcoran Crossbody is as versatile as it is functional. The zipper pocket built into the flap is a great place to keep your phone.  Two exterior slip pockets keep your keys and necessities handy.  The main compartment beneath the flap opens with a zipper.  A pen pocket, additional slip pocket, and optional zipper pocket keep the main compartment organized.  The adjustable crossbody strap connects to swivel hooks on the riveted bag gusset. Whether you showcase a unique print on the flap or use solids for a minimalist feel, your creativity will find expression.

    This is a great pattern and beautiful end result! The video is also very helpful and well done. This was my first bag and I’m really pleased. It is probably a bit tricky for a first time sewer, but anyone with a little sewing experience will love the result.
