Important Note: My PDF patterns are a little different than others.  The way it works is that once purchase the pattern, you will receive a code in your email (within 24 hours) which is good for 1 download (save the pattern on your computer).  Once you download the pattern, there are many different options for printing, if that is what you desire. The pattern includes detailed instructions with lots of pictures


The Minifacto is a great cross body bag with adjustable strap, for all your shopping expeditions.  It features a quick access exterior phone pocket (Something which is fast becoming a signature pocket! You will LOVE this feature!) neatly tucked into the wall of your bag.  A hidden zipper pocket features at the back and at the front is an accordion pocket closing with a flap. The main compartment closes with a recessed zipper. Inside you will find two slip pockets and a zipper pocket.
