    ***FREE VIDEO INCLUDED!***

    Watch the Trailer:

    The Quick No-Zip Crossbody is a super-fast, fun crossbody bag which you can whip up really quickly, using only a small amount of fabric and minimal hardware. A testament to how quickly these bags can be sewn, is the fact that many of the testers made multiple versions. It is super addictive! Great for sew and sell!

    The bag features a back quick access phone pocket, a hidden key pocket under the flap and inside the roomy main compartment is a card pocket which can hold multiple cards. A great bag for beginners and advanced sewists alike!

    The Quick No-Zip Crossbody Bag makes up beautifully in a whole range of different materials including quilting cottons, canvas, vinyl, cork or leather. You can also use fabric with a combination of faux leather, cork or vinyl. Get creative with the flap with embroidery or other embellishments. Use all plain fabrics or all patterned.  You are limited only by your imagination. This design is perfect for selling at the markets or in your online shop, Etsy and more. Perfect to hold all your essentials for your morning run or a quick dash to the shop.

    With the included video tutorial, you won’t have any problems making this bag at all. Of course, if watching a video isn’t your thing, the pattern comes with my usual full comprehensive instructions with lots of photos. Full pattern pieces are included as well as cutting measurements for those of you who like to cut with a mat and ruler.

    PLUS, it comes with a Projector File included too!

SO, as I have decided to retire my Gizmo Garage PDF Pattern to make way for new patterns, I am giving the retiring Gizmo Garage as a BONUS pattern with Edition #3.

    Please refer to sizing guide included in the pattern to help you choose the correct size for your laptop! This main area is free from any other pockets to protect your laptop from scratches or external damage due to rubbing!
