Description

This is our best selling pattern!
Note: THIS IS NOT A FINISHED PRODUCT. Please read all of the details before purchasing!

Megan W designed this little bag in 2008 for a customer who wanted a mini purse to carry her cell phone, credit cards and few other essentials. It became her best-selling item on Etsy, and many customers requested the pattern so they could make their own -- well, it's finally here!

"The Minimalist" is perfect for those times when you just need to carry the essentials, but don't be deceived by its size - you can fit quite a bit in this little bag! Whether you're running errands, going to a sporting event, or hitting the town, you can customize it for your daily needs. With three separate compartments and two strap options, it's super versatile. Keep your cell phone in the front slip pocket for quick, easy access. Stash credit cards, cash, business cards, even a passport in the main zippered compartment or in the zippered pocket on the back of the bag. The rear pocket has an accordian-style gusset, enabling it to expand to fit a whole stack of credit cards. Easily clip your keyring onto one of the bolt snaps and you're ready to go! Wanna go hands-fee? Trade out the short strap for the long one (with adjustable slider) and wear it cross body.

This pattern includes 9 pages of clear, thorough instructions and 35 color photos to help you along the way. Printable on 8-1/2" by 11" paper. Once you purchase the listing, you'll be given instructions on how to download the pattern immediately.

- Option 2: 4-3/4" wide x 7-5/8" tall - designed for iPhone 6 Plus (or similarly sized phone)

*Note: the finished bag will fit the phone sizes as shown above even with a slim lined case. If you have a very bulky case such as an OtterBox, you may need to increase the size of the bag.
