Notes about front pocket:
The front pocket of the Calathea Crossbody Bag is 10” (25cm) square in size. **Please be aware when planning your block, you will lose ¼” (0.6cm) seam allowance in the seams, you will also lose 1” in the bottom corners of your block due to the boxed corners in this design. This is especially important! Particularly when aligning applique. **

This PDF pattern includes a bonus extra paper piecing pattern that you may like to use for your front pocket thanks to Kristy Lea from Quiet Play. Please note there are not instructions on how to construct this included.
