The Alyssa Hip Bag Digital Pattern
The Alyssa is a very classy looking hip bag - not a traditional style fanny pack - worn with a matching or purchased belt. Convert it to a crossbody/shoulder bag with a sophisticated chain strap, or change up the look for the evening to a clutch with the matching wristlet. The Alyssa Hip Bag will get your through the day with a mere change of the strap and without having to move things from one purse to the other for your different activities or wardrobe style.
Dress it up with a metal flap edge and magnetic snap, or go understated with a turnlock. Designed for leather, faux leather/vinyl, and cork with a cotton lining. If you choose to use quilting cotton or cotton canvas for the exterior, increase the amount of SF101 required. If using cotton, your bag will be slightly less structured. This bag is perfect for showing off that beautiful fabric you "just had to have."
