A PDF SEWING PATTERN for the Tessa Bag, a fully lined crossbody bag with a top zipper closure and an adjustable strap with two sizes included in the pattern – one large enough for a tablet 11” x 10” (28 cm x 25 cm) and one the perfect size for a cell phone 8” x 5” (20 cm x 13 cm). You have the option of a zippered pocket inside the tablet sized bag and options for an outer pocket and pocket flap for either sized bag.
Also included with the pattern is the Booklet “Repurposing Jeans!” for sewing your Tessa Bag with repurposed denim and making your bag “unique” with added embellishments. One small pair of adult jeans can easily make a Tessa Bag! “Repurposing Jeans!” is loaded with 52 full colour photos on its 16 pages.
