Love my crossover bag

The pattern was very good and easy to use. And how to sew the zipper in was especially great- I’ve never been good at those🤣!
Love all the patterns I’ve received from here - both free and purchased

Favourite Apple Green Cottage pattern

I have made a lot of the NEA Crossbody bags and love the pattern. It is compact but holds a lot and can be made from a variety fabrics and colours. Will definitely be making more 💕
