This pattern comes from one of my favorites sewing designers, Svetlana Sotak ( She was kind enough to give me permission to teach her Luisa Crossbody pattern as a class, and I hope you like this bag as much as I do. It’s a functional, crossbody bag featuring 3 different zipper techniques, lots of pockets, and the possibility for lots of fun personalizing. These purses make great gifts, or make one (or two!) for yourself!
