This might be one of the most stress-free bags you’ll ever sew. It’s simple to make, it’s simple to cut out, it’s FAST and it doesn’t use up a ton of your precious fabric. The lining is completely hidden, so use a bright coordinating solid to save money! I wanted a super fast alternative to the Two Zip Hipster. Making a dozen of these for your Etsy shop won’t break the bank or be a total time suck. I LOVE that. And so will you.

Perfect for grocery shopping, because it’s hands free and will hold your phone, keys and wallet. It’s also perfect for traveling and will keep your passport safe and with you at all times. Since the pieces are rectangles, you could easily add inches to make the bag wider or longer as needed.

Instructions are included for strap widths from 1/4″ to 1″, so you don’t need to track down specific sized hardware. Add a fixed strap or a removable strap, which is nice for when you want to tuck the purse into a larger tote and not deal with the strap getting tangled. Best of all, there are no raw edges. The instructions walk you through a bit of magic so that you can turn it through an opening in the lining.

Perfect for teens and younger girls, too!
