This listing is for PDF pattern to make the bag, not the actual bag!

Stylish, minimalistic crossbody messenger bag for men is the second bag in the Contour series. Actually, it is unisex but I don't have much stuff for guys so I decided to call it this way :)

It only has one pocket but you can add another one inside if you want. The bag has original way of attaching the strap - without hardware (except the rivets).

This project is quite easy and quick and is suitable for a beginner.

Size: approx. 10" x 9" x 2"


Gusset: thickest stuff you’ve got - something from 6-7 to 10 oz.
Body: 4-6 oz
Straps: 5-7 oz
Pocket: 3-5 oz


1 x 1” swivel hook
1 x 1” D-ring
1 x 1“ buckle

Pattern is designed for hand stitching.
Comes with written instructions and tutorial video.

The pattern has stitching holes marked for 5 SPI stitching irons (5 stitches per inch, or approximately 5.2 mm). 5 mm stitching irons made by metric system sometimes fit, sometimes they don’t (depending on manufacturer). If you have 5 mm irons and the spacing seems a tad too large for them you can print the pattern at 96.2% scale. I advise to print one page and try your irons to see how they fit before printing the entire pattern.

Formats: A4 and USLetter.
