This is for the Downloadable PDF Pattern Atomic Hip Pouch and Cross Body Bag.**
The Atomic Hip Pouch and Cross Body Bag pattern offers 3 bags in one, with even more variation possibilities in your closure choice (and a bunch of pattern hacks and ideas in the tutorials section on the website)! With sustainability in mind, this bag was designed to help reduce that fabric scrap stash, where all pieces are small enough (minus the strap) to most likely be found in your scrap bin!
This bag has a finished size of 7.5" long, 5" tall, and about 1" deep. Just big enough to hold your essentials: keys, wallet, phone, inhaler (for us asthmatics 😉), and lip balm!
View A: The hip pouch version has belt loops, so you can attach it to your own belt.
View B: The cross body version has an attached strap.
View C: The combo bag features a detachable strap and belt loops affixed to the back.
Materials needed (not included):
Fabric:This bag looks great as all one color or with contrasting fabric for the gusset, mainbody, and flap! If purchasing new fabric, you will need about 2-3 fat quarters or about 1 yard of fabric.
All Views: flap closure can be made using buttons, magnetic snaps, sew on snaps, or whatever you have on hand.
View A: No additional hardware besides closure
View B: No additional hardware besides closure
View C: Buttons or snaps for the removable strap. Alternatively you could use lobster clasps to attach the strap to the bag (see tutorials for instructions on this method)
Stabilizer and Interfacing (fusible interfacing, fleece, batting, foam, etc):
All Views: 1 yard of lightweight fusible interfacing, such as Pellon SF 101.
optional: 1/2 yard Stabilizer of your choice (fusible fleece, quilters battingm foam)
