Making this origami crossbody bag is easy and fun and oh-so-rewarding. Mix bag and lining fabrics to match all your outfits and add your own strap styles and embellishments to create extra personal touches.

It’s easy to adjust the size to make smaller as an evening bag or bigger for shopping … just be sure the rectangle size is length is 3 times longer than the width.

What You Need:
.3m of 150cm boiled wool fabric (or similar weight)
.3m of lining fabric (any width)
1.2m faux leather or other trim for the strap
2x triangle rings
2x swivel hooks

STEP 1:
Cut 1 piece each of the wool and the lining 36×12”. With right sides together, sew around all edges leaving a small opening.

STEP 2:
Turn right side out, press flat and edge stitch around the entire rectangle. Mark 14” on top and bottom edge as diagram and fold as shown.

STEP 3:
Fold sides towards the center along top and bottom points and pin. Machine stitch in place as far as possible along edgestitch end as shown. Hand stitch remaining opening to the point.

STEP 4:
Flip over and repeat. It will be trickier to sew the flap to the body on the 2nd side. Sew as far as you can and hand stitch remaining opening closed.

STEP 5:
Fold top of the bag tips over triangle ring bar and stitch in place as shown. Cut the strap to your preferred length, fold ends over swivel hooks as shown and stitch.

STEP 6:
Attach handle and add embellishments such as tassels or appliqués to personalize.

With the swivel hooks, it’s easy to make multiple straps to suit your mood or for an extra-easy version, just sew the strap trim directly to the corners of the bag.
