Snazzy Slouch PDF Pattern

(6 customer reviews)



The Snazzy Slouch is not only fabulous to just grab, throw over your shoulder and go, it is also super organized and roomy too! Complete with 4 external slip pockets (all deep enough so that their contents are kept safe) perfect for your phone, keys and other bits and pieces you might need to grab in a hurry.

The main compartment is zippered so that everything inside is secure. Plus, there is an internal zipper divider pocket and 4 extra internal slip pockets to keep your bag super organized! Last but not least, the Snazzy Slouch has an adjustable strap so you can make it the length that suits you!

Finished size = approx. 30cm (12”) X 23cm (9”) X 12.5cm ( 5”)


The pattern for the Snazzy Slouch has 33 pages of instructions which include 75 step by step colour photos. There is printing instructions and test squares to check scale. Both Pattern pieces and cutting measurements are included so you can choose your favourite cutting method! Measurements are provided in both Metric and Imperial!

PLUS a TEXT ONLY version (10 pages) of the instructions comes bundled with your pattern for printing purposes, should you not need or wish to print all of the photos! Simply refer to your electronic versions for photos if needed! Saves on ink!

    I love this! Easy pattern and great instructions. Showed off the purse at work and ended up having to make one for a co-worker. 🙂

    Not often that you get such nice curved shapes by sewing straight seams. This is a really great pattern and the finished product is very functional.

    I finished my first Snazzy Slouch a few days ago and have been using it ever since. It is my favourite handbag EVER! The pattern is amazing and Christine’s instructions are so easy to follow. There are so many pockets to in this bag that there is a perfect spot for everything. It is very comfortable to carry. The bag can hold a lot of stuff but doesn’t end up a bottomless black hole for all my things thanks to the centre divider zip pocket. I can’t wait to make more!

    Very easy to follow directions. I made this for a male customer and he loves it, I used a masculine design fabric and added some pencil/paint brush holders. Thanks Chris for another great pattern
