Dot Dot Dash Crossbody Bag


The project this week is the Dot Dot Dash Crossbody Pattern from Sew Sweetness.  This is one of Sara Lawson’s stand alone patterns.  You could easily use this as a purse or a tablet bag.

MATERIALS NEEDED: Fabric for exterior and lining, interfacing, metal sliders and zippers.

NOTIONS NEEDED: Wonder clips or pins, iron, sewing machine, rotary cutter, scissors, fabric marker, needles and walking foot.


The first step I always take when making something new is to cut out all the pieces and label them.  This step saves me a lot of time later.  If I have pieces that need interfacing, I attach them at this time as well.
