The Irene Crossbody is perfect for everyday use & makes a fantastic travel companion with its compact sizing. You will be able to keep all of your essentials easily accessible with the extra-long zipper and wide-open view of the interior. The Irene comes with multiple options for the front & back pockets, as well as options for the strap and interior storage. Snap and zip closures on all exterior pockets keep your items safe while still quick to find. Mix and match to get exactly what you need!

In this pattern, you will learn how to create accordion gussets, make a card slot lining, create five different pocket views, and use varying hardware for different looks.  The interior has both a clean finish for the front opening and also utilizes minimal bias tape for structure on the back of the bag.  This is a great pattern to use up fabric scraps with its modest footprint. You can also play around with fabric placement for a look that is all your own.
