Quick Overview

The Squiffy Sling is a quirky quickie sewing pattern. The clever construction of this cross-body shoulder bag makes it an easy but interesting sew, creating a fun finished bag that you can make as unique as you are!


The Squiffy Sling was originally designed for the winter 2017 Bag Retreat with Mrs H.



Small: 8" x 9" x 3" (20cm x 23cm x 8cm)

Large: 10" x 11" x 4" (25cm x 28cm x 10cm)






  • Simple construction - one pattern piece for the outer and for the lining
  • Instructions for a zip pocket and slip pocket 
  • Fully lined cross-body strap





The Squiffy Sling pattern can be made in two sizes. The smaller version is a petite 8" x 9" x 3" (20cm x 23cm x 8cm) and makes a perfect purse for shopping or days out. If you like to carry a little more in your everyday bag, the larger version is 10" x 11" x 4" (25cm x 28cm x 10cm).



Bag Features


Simple but stylish, The Squiffy Sling is a great beginner sew. With fun asymmetrical styling but just one pattern piece for outer and lining, it's a quickie!


One of my most popular sewing patterns, this is a great pattern for showing off your interesting fabrics. Use a solid fabric in a bold colour to contrast with your faux leather base overlay, or use a fun design to really make the shape of the bag pop.


The pattern includes instructions on using a half moon magnetic snap, creating a fully lined cross body strap and adding both zip and slip pockets. There are also placement markings for using a different fastener on the pattern piece.
