The Minimalist PDF Pattern

The Minimalist PDF Pattern


"The Minimalist" is perfect for those times when you just need to carry the essentials, but don't be deceived by its size - you can fit quite a bit in this little bag! Whether you're running errands, going to a sporting event, or hitting the town, you can customize it for your daily needs. With three separate compartments and two strap options, it's super versatile. Keep your cell phone in the front slip pocket for quick, easy access. Stash credit cards, cash, business cards, even a passport in the main zippered compartment or in the zippered pocket on the back of the bag. The rear pocket has an accordian-style gusset, enabling it to expand to fit a whole stack of credit cards. Easily clip your keyring onto one of the bolt snaps and you're ready to go! Wanna go hands-fee? Trade out the short strap for the long one (with adjustable slider) and wear it cross body.
