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!
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!
Plus, to sign up to our mailing list, click here and for those who love a good hardware kit, the lovely Kylie from Betty Box Pleat has set up a hardware and interfacing kit for this pattern which is an absolute steal! You can find the kit here.
