Update 3/31/22: I changed the measurements of panel 2 to 9" x 6 1/2" (23 x 16.5 cm), to accommodate differences when installing the zipper. After you finished installing the front zipper pocket, measure the height of your front exterior, trim off the bottom part (if any excess) so that your front exterior panel will measure 7 1/2" (19 cm) tall.
The mini crossbody bag project is a fun, fat quarter friendly project for you to sew. I love the compactness and the functionality of this darling little bag, which just enough to carry your necessities such as cellphone, small wallet, sunglasses, face covering, keys, chapstick, etc.
Finished bag measurements : 8” x 7” x 1“ (20.3 x 17.8 x 2.5 cm)
Front zipper pocket
Back exterior pocket with magnetic snap closure
Interior slip pockets
Please note that this project is designed for cotton quilting fabric. If you opt for heavier fabric, you need to adjust the interfacing accordingly, you may leave out the fusible fleece, or leave out all the interfacing altogether depending on the thickness of your fabric. I do not recommend very heavy fabric for this project.
