Polly Cross Body Pouch

Polly Cross Body Pouch - Andrie Designs

Hi bag makers! Say hello to Polly! Initially available only to those subscribed to our mailing list, the Polly Cross Body Pouch was originally released as a thank you pattern for mailing list subscribers back in 2016. However, nowadays you can find her in our pattern shop, alongside all our other designs, and available for purchase!

PLUS!

She now has her very own comprehensive video class available as well! The class will step you through how to assemble each and every component of the design, plus show you how to sew many parts on your machine as well! Hooray!

Polly is a beautifully quick sew, and suitable for children right through to adults due to her adjustable cross body strap. She features an outer zipper pocket (hidden under the flap) and a simple magnetic snap closure. She makes for the perfect grab-and-go pouch for a quick trip to the shops, to the park or even to take the dog for a walk. My amazing testing team have had a blast making their Polly Cross Body Pouches, as you will see below!

You can find the Polly Cross Body Pouch pattern here and the comprehensive video class here.

This abundance of Polly’s was made by the darling Leah from Mama May Designs! Some have slight modifications that are super easy to do on this design including an external slip pocket, the zipper pocket on the back instead of the front, and one is even scaled up slightly to fit her current book!

 

Charlotte from Les envies de Charlotte had fun adding a few extra details to her Polly’s!

    Thank you so much! I love it! I have already made your backpack for my grandson-which he loves, and I will make this for my grand daughter! And I may just need one for myself! Thanks again!

  2. Karen C says:

    Thanks for setting up an email list. Facebook is so unreliable in sending out announcements whether you’re signed up for all posts or not. Also thank you for the free pattern. Hope to have time to make these for my granddaughters for Christmas.

  3. Kathryn J Louisignau says:

    Thank you so much! I’m going to make several of these for all the lovely ladies in my life. I love it! I love the front flap to showcase an extra desirable piece of fabric and that zipper is perfectly placed. Can’t wait to get started!

  4. Kit says:

    Thank you so much for this pattern, I adore it… or at least I did until my darling child managed to somehow corrupt some files on my computer. Is there any way I could get it resent as its definately one I’d want to make again!

  5. Ruth Maxgay says:

    Hi, is it still possible to get the Polly pattern? I signed up for the email list a couple of weeks ago, and have not received it yet. I am always excited to try new patterns, and this one looks awesome!

    • Lisa says:

      Hi Ruth! Yes you are most definitely still able to get a copy of Polly! Feel free to send me an email via the Contact page on my website and I’ll sort it out from there. 🙂
