I made these Crossbody Bags with the Gerbera FREE Pattern from Blue Calla.  The Gerbera Crossbody is a great pattern if you are in need of a quick craft show or gift item! It has a feature centre panel where you can focus a small piece of your favorite fabric, a gusset and a few pleats along the bottom. You can make the Gerbera as either a wristlet or a mini cross body bag.

The finished measurements are: 10.5″ W x 6″ H x 4″ D

I made this Beauty and the Beast bag for my son’s girlfriend.  She was Belle in the High School Beauty and the Beast musical and my son was The Beast.  This has been her favorite show and she loves everything Beauty and The Beast.

It brings great memories for all of us – we all enjoyed this musical so much 🙂

 

This is my second Gerbera, this time in cork and Art Gallery Avantgarde Steps Above Prism Fabric – I’ve seen this fabrics in other bags and I had to try it.

The Gerbera Mini Crossbody Bag features an interior pocket and the pattern provides instructions to turn the bag through the zip pocket .  I added a tassel that I made using a tassel cap.

I love that these zipper pulls have a hole where you can hang the tassel.

I used this stunning silver zipper! I’ve been using them for all of my recent projects! Sign up below to receive 10% OFF your first order.

I also added one of the acrylic tags that I got from Maple & Rose (They look like metal, but they are acrylic – you can customize it however you want)

This was my first project using real leather – and I’m very happy in how it turned out.

This is a fast project where you can use your fabric remnants.

I changed the installation of the D-ring strap – instead of sewing it to the side seams as instructed by the pattern, I added it at the end and attached it to the zipper tabs with a rivet.

This YouTube video shows how to do this for the Clematis Bag.  I used the same approach for these bags.

I hope you find this FREE pattern useful,

Happy Sewing,

Anabelle
