PDF Pattern: Julicita Rainbow Crossbody Bag in 3 shapes & sizes



  • Digital download
  • Digital file type(s): 4 PDF

The Julicita Rainbow Crossbody PDF Sewing Pattern has everything you need to create this gorgeous, customizable crossbody bag in three separate sizes and shapes: a vertical version (8" wide x 9" tall x 2" deep), a horizontal version (11" wide x 8.5" tall x 2" deep), and a square version (10" x 10" x 2").

Each version of the Julicita Rainbow Crossbody features a front accent panel that is easily adaptable to your personal aesthetic. Follow my instructions to build an art-deco-inspired rainbow radial array, or feature a single piece of a favorite fabric or some custom embroidery. This bag will especially appeal to makers who appreciate lots of room for creativity in their process!

The meticulous instructions and copious photos and illustrations make this bag a great choice for a confident beginner ready to graduate from simple zipper pouches and tote bags to a full-featured lined bag with zipper compartments and an adjustable strap. I recommend that beginners work with quilting cotton for their first Julicita Rainbow bag. Experienced sewists with industrial machines can definitely venture into vinyls, leathers, and other heavier materials.


The 80-page main PDF document contains:

--37 pages of crystal-clear instructions, with attention given to the "why" of each step as well as the "what"
--131 photographs and 6 scale diagrams illustrating the techniques described
--Helpful tips for beginners, separated out in blue boxes (thus easy to skip if you don't need them)
--Cut list and layout diagrams for those who are comfortable cutting rectangles with quilting rulers
--Print-at-home full-scale pattern pieces for each size bag, for those who prefer full-size templates for cutting (printable on Letter or A4 size paper)

The three separate A0 Large Format PDF documents include full scale pattern pieces for each size bag, designed to be printed at a professional print shop on a large format printer OR used with a projector at home. These files include a note to print shop staff confirming that the bearer of the files has my permission to make hard copies.

Please be sure to note: You are purchasing an instant digital download of the pattern and instructions to make this bag -- not a finished product! The pictures of finished bags in this listing are intended to show you what you can make using your pattern.

Also note that because this is a digital download (once you have access to it I can't revoke it) no refunds can be given UNLESS you accidentally purchase more than one copy. Although if you have a convincing enough sob story I might make an exception--I'm pretty friendly about that kind of thing.

You may sell bags that you create from this pattern on a small basis (no mass production). In your sales listings please identify the pattern as the Julicita Rainbow Crossbody by Bozeman Batiks. Thank you!

Special thanks to my pattern testers Rae Imdieke of Emporium Threads, Jennifer Epp, and Tracy Warneke-Klepzig of Creations by Skittlz for their insights, test creations, and very helpful suggestions for improvement on this pattern prior to its release.

I love being able to support a business in my hometown! As a retail worker, I have to wear a mask 8+ hours a day, and this mask design makes it easy to do so. Being able to loop the elastic around my head and neck saves my ears from getting wrecked by day's end. The bottom was a tad big for my face, but adding a pleat under my chin got it fitting snugly. Plus the fabric style is great-- several of my co-workers complemented me on it (I purchased this plus a Magenta Storm)! Seller communication was great, and shipping was prompt. Thank you!

Julie is amazing. Her mask designs are beautiful, and she is incredibly responsive. I ordered the grab bag - 5 masks for $80, and I requested specific colors for the masks and the borders. In less than an hour (on a Sunday!) Julie sent me photos of options, to make sure she understood which colors I was referring to. In the end, I changed several of my choices. As soon as Julie received my final selections, she put the masks in the mail and I received them in a couple of days. 6 Stars!

I received this bag today (in record time of two days from order placement). I am blown away. As a very seasoned quilter and one who has been sewing since I was seven years old, I can honestly say that the construction of this bag is absolutely flawless. The stitching is perfect. The design is thoughtful and practical. The quality of the fabrics is superb. This bag will be a gift I am proud to give.
