The Snazzy Slouch Pattern by ChrisW Designs

It’s done! WOW! That was quicker than launching a NEW pattern, that is for sure! AND yes….many of you guessed correctly that for me, the best part about revamping this pattern, compared to launching a new one, was that I didn’t have to NAME it!

Congrats to Sam, Melody and Allison who all one a copy of the Snazzy Slouch pattern (or their choice of another pattern) just for entering into my fun little competition!


The Snazzy Slouch is not only fabulous to just grab & throw over your shoulder and go BUT it is super organized and roomy too!

Complete with 4 external slip pockets, deep enough so the contents are safe and perfect for your phone, keys and other bits & pieces you might need to grab in a hurry.

The main compartment is zippered so everything inside is secure PLUS there is an internal zipper divider pocket and 4 extra internal slip pockets so you too can keep your bag super organized!

PLUS the Snazzy Slouch has an adjustable strap so you can make it the length that suits YOU!

Finished bag size = Approx. 30cm (12″) X 23cm (9″) X 12.5cm ( 5″)

  1. It was great being able to test the original one and even more fun testing this second revised one. Best of all is seeing everyone’s version of the same pattern. They all look fantastic.

  2. Hi Jo,
    The amount of time needed to make the Snazzy Slouch will depend on whether you are new to sewing and/or new to sewing bags ….as well as your own personal work speed. At a guess, please consider it a weekend project. Some experienced sewists may make their bag in just a few hours….others may take longer than a weekend. It’s all very much an individual process!
