I’m super excited to show you the Ready-to-go sewing pattern available right now in my pattern shop. It has two versions; wristlet and crossbody, they are the same size but you can wear them differently, that is the crossbody across your shoulder and the wristlet on your wrist. There are also two methods of boxing the bottom corners; the sewing method and the rivet method, both of these are based on your choice and gives the same results.
Great news! there is a contest going on for 3 weeks from today, all you need to do to enter the contest is to make a Ready-to-go purse either the crossbody or wristlet or both, and post it to our Facebook community; Tobistylx Sewing Patterns then you stand the chance to be the winner of this contest! Are you ready?
The Ready-to-go purse features one inner slip pocket, an interior zipper pocket, and the main compartment with main zipper closure, it’s very functional as it’s of great size, handy, and has room enough to accommodate your phone, wallet, keys, and even some makeups. It has two versions; crossbody and wristlet version.
The crossbody version has a long adjustable and detachable strap, while the wristlet version has a functional wristlet strap, the beautiful thing is that you can make just one and let it serve the purpose of both the crossbody and the wristlet for you, isn’t that wonderful? It’s beginner-friendly and the pattern is written to accommodate a wide range of skill levels. It’s a perfect cute purse.
