Meet the Alpen Belt Bag Pattern (available in my shop HERE)! The Alpen Bag is a quilted zipper pouch that’s easy to wear cross-body for both daily use and exciting adventures. The main zipper compartment is perfect for a wallet plus phone, while the two interior slip pockets help keep smaller items contained.
If you’d like to make your own Alpen Belt Bag join me for a Sew Along the week of Monday, May 15th. We’ll have small assignments each day, where I’ll share tips, tricks, and videos, and by Friday, May 19th, we’ll have completed our bags! You can sign up to receive the daily Sew Along emails by clicking HERE.
And for those wanting some recommendations for the supplies needed, I’ve got you covered! The Supply Requirements are below, along with a list of shops and items I’ve personally ordered from before. Just make sure when you’re looking at options that you choose 1 1/2″ wide webbing/strapping and 1 1/2″ wide hardware so they are compatible. If you have additional shop or product recommendations, please share in the comments!

I’d love to do the sew along. Do I have to be on live with you or you’re putting taped videos out daily?
I’m so glad you want to join! There aren’t any live portions, as we have participants around the world. I’ll be sending out an email each day and posting prerecorded videos on my instagram account. Then everyone can sew at their own pace when they have time available. 🙂
Looks great! Here in the UK all the supplies can be purchased from http://www.purple-stitches.com
Thank you so much for that recommendation!
