11 Free Crossbody Bag Sewing Patterns

DIY the shoulder bag of your dreams with one of these adorable free sewing patterns.

11 Free Crossbody Bag Sewing Patterns

Going on a day trip soon? Looking for an on-the-go purse that you can keep close that isn't too heavy? Consider sewing a crossbody bag pattern. Also known as a shoulder bag, these types of free purse patterns are ideal for days out and about.

Because they sling across your body and rest at your hip, they stay close without being too bulky. The balanced weight also helps give your shoulder a rest! That's why we think you'll love this list of 11 crossbody purse patterns.

DIY crossbody bag patterns vary a ton! You can find full-blow designer-like purse patterns and you can DIY simple and small passport or phone bags. The purse you pick really depends on your need and your sewing skill level. Check out some of our favorite homemade crossbody bags to DIY!


Crossbody Bag Sewing Tip! Just like any purse, you want to make sure your strap is strong and stays connected. If you plan on carrying something heavy in your bag (like an electronic) consider adding more seams to where you connect the strap to the main section of the bag for more support.

So many great bags in this post that I simply do not know where to start (although I do rather like the black and white one - both the bag and the fabric print!). And don't you love the beautiful red Celine Inspired bag? Well I have finally decided I'm going to make the black and white one first, then the red and after that I'll see which one I feel like making next.

I have been on the hunt for the perfect crossbody bag but have yet to find what I want. This page has inspired me to go ahead and make one instead of buying!

Cross-body bags are so practical and versatile. Plus, they allow you to more evenly distribute the weight on your shoulder which is always a plus.
