Although The Squiffy Sling pattern is designed for beginners, the clever construction of this cross-body bag makes it an interesting sew with a quirky finished bag perfect for everyday use.
The Squiffy Sling was designed for the winter 2017 Bag Retreat with Mrs H.
- Small: 8″ x 9″ x 3″ (20cm x 23cm x 8cm)L
- Large: 10″ x 11″ x 4″ (25cm x 28cm x 10cm)
The Squiffy Sling is a great beginner sew. With fun asymmetrical styling but just one pattern piece for outer and lining, it’s a quickie! This is a great pattern for showing off your interesting fabrics. Use a solid fabric in a bold colour to contrast with your faux leather base overlay, or use a fun design to really make the shape of the bag pop.
The pattern includes instructions on using a half moon magnetic snap, creating a fully lined cross body strap and adding both zip and slip pockets. There’s also placement markings for using a different fastener on the pattern piece.
