Make yourself a Lizzie Bag! This large cross-body messenger bag is perfect for your laptop, diaper bag, or even your gym clothes! This PDF purse pattern contains lots of color photos and complete instructions plus paper templates.

It has 9 pockets including a large inside pocket for files or a laptop, outside end pockets for sunglasses or cellphone, and pockets inside for cords, a mouse, a pen, bottles, keys, etc. The flap covers everything securely and there's an adjustable strap.

This pattern uses rotary cutting and step-by-step assembly to make it EASY! You can also use the paper pattern pieces to cut and pin, if you'd rather!

Need the buckle and slide loop for the adjustable strap? I now offer the set in nickel finish:

The finished size of this purse is 14" wide x 11" tall x 4" deep. It has a large inside pocket, 3 smaller inside pockets, 3 pockets under the flap, and 2 end pockets.

This pattern was extremely easy to follow! The pictures are great and the explanations are very helpful! Very impressed with this. I have almost finished my purse. The part that takes the longest is getting everything cut out and interfaced. The rest went very quickly!

Love this pattern! So easy to follow and very functional. I even added Velcro straps on the sides of the unicorn purse so my granddaughter could carry her Barbie dolls. Thank you!!
