The Sweet Pea Saddle Bag is a FREE Pattern  from Blue Calla. This adorable cross body bag is perfect for children or adults who want a smaller sized bag for essentials. It is a simple, easy sew – one zippered pocket on the inside and a flap closure with instructions for an optional decorative tassel on the flap.

The finished measurements are:

  • Width: 8 inches
  • Height: 6.25 inches
  • Depth: 2.5 inches

I made my version of this cute bag using Waterproof Canvas and Black and Silver Cork.   I made the tassel and for the strap I used webbing.
