Today I’m excited to reintroduce you to the June Bag Cross Body Bag Sewing Pattern. It’s one of the very first patterns that I designed, and one of my favorites. With the pattern now over 7 years old it was time for it to have a little “make over”.
Way back in 2008 I was going on a trip and needed a lightweight cross body bag to take with me. I just need to fit my phone (which was tiny at the time), a wallet and a few personal items. I also wanted a bag with a pocket in the back for stashing maps or tickets.
I designed the bag for myself and liked how it turned out so well, that I decided to write up a pattern for it. Since then it’s been one of my best sellers.
Since 2008 my photography and graphic design skills have improved and I recently realized it was time to apply those skills to my existing sewing patterns. For the last few months I’ve be re photographing the bags and making minor changes to the pattern (like adding an adjustable strap).
I’ve stitched up samples of the bag in some of my Derby Style and Wonderland Fabric.
The basic bag pattern remains exactly the same, some of the updates include:
Adding the option for an Adjustable Bag Strap (that can be covered with fabric or left natural)
Improved Interfacing Recommendations
Printable Pattern Pieces
To purchase the June Bag just hop on over to my PATTERN SHOP. I do have plans to release this pattern in print, and I’ll be sure to let you know when they are available.
If you purchased the June Bag pattern in the past, just shoot me an email (contact info is up there ^) and I’ll be happy to send you the updated version.
