This funky little crossbody features unique O-ring details on the exterior with the option to add a tassel and exterior zip pocket. Inside it features a neat, fitted lining with a simple zipper pocket. This little bag comes together quickly and is a great size to carry your daily essentials.

The Momexa is a cousin of the Lomexa. Not only is it smaller, but it has a few additional changes to the construction, the base and the pockets. This is a quicker, simplified version of the Lomexa and is great for those who prefer a smaller bag.

The pattern includes step-by-step photo instructions to guide you through the process of making this gorgeous little bag. There’s also a full video tutorial that you can watch alongside the pattern. Check out the beautiful tester bags for fabric ideas and inspiration.

  1. Wanda Lomer Verified Owner

    I have not yet made the Momexa since I am searching for the perfect fabric, but as with all of Country Cow Designs, I know I will be able to follow the instructions. Of course, Jo’s tutorials are wonderful.

  2. Pamela Verified Owner

    The Momexa was the first ‘proper’ bag I’ve made. It took me a while because I’m a beginner, but the instructions were really clear and I now have an amazing bag which I’m super proud of and use all the time! I would highly recommend this pattern. I’ve already purchased my next bag pattern (Teloujay) and just need to find the time to make it!

  3. Mariyam Manik Verified Owner

    Made my first Momexa and it is the perfect bag for me. Doesn’t look too big but my full size wallet fits in with ease. So happy with it. Also the lining fits so snugly that it looks amazingly professional. Thank you for this wonderful pattern and all ur other patterns and videos. I wait earnestly for each of your new patterns. So easy to follow.

  4. Kim Violanti Verified Owner

    I have purchased several Country Cow patterns, they are well designed and easy to follow. The end product makes me look like I know what I’m doing 😉

  5. Heather F. Verified Owner

    What a great pattern! I’ve already made two. It’s easy to understand and the bag itself looks awesome! Can’t wait to make more.

  6. TotellyTrendy ByCindy Verified Owner

    Such a darling little handbag and so unique! The pattern is well written, clear and concise. The video tutorial is the best … top notch instructor! All of her tutorials are so in depth, step by step, with new things to learn each time. Even if I’m not making that particular bag, I get such enjoyment watching her videos and learning new ways to do things. Thank you for all you put into designing these handbags and creating awesome videos 🙂

  7. Lisa Verified Owner

    I love this pattern – it’s a perfect size for what I need and it looks awesome! The instructions are really clear and guide the sewist through with tips to minimise bulk in the seams- and end up with a professional finish

  8. Rhonda Bangsund Verified Owner

    I made the Momexa last summer, it was my first “real bag”. My neighbor saw it and wanted one custom made for his girlfriend’s birthday last August. She loved it and recently messaged me to say she’s had lots of compliments and one lady would like one made as well! The video was a big help and the pattern is very well written too…I would highly recommend any of their patterns!

  9. Wendy McMullen Verified Owner

    Fantastic pattern and loved making this bag for my friend – my first commissioned bag.

  10. Jeanne Harrington

    This is a great pattern!!! Well written and anyone can do if you carefully follow her instructions. I make tons of bag patterns, most only get made once. This pattern I have made multiple times, that is a testament to a excellant design!!!

  11. carlascakes Verified Owner

    I made several Momexa, still in love with this pattern,
    I made this one Enlarged at 110%, made out of WPC and a trapunto embroidery on the front.
    A perfect pattern, easy to follow. Domestic machine friendly.

  12. Fiona Smith Verified Owner

    Another absolutely stunning pattern. I have purchased quite a few Country Cow Designs patterns and each and every one is very well written, comes together beautifully and I love the fact that your patterns are all unique and don’t look similar to any other designers bags. My first make of yours was a free pattern, which was a great way to find out how well I liked your designs and instructions. I’m very much a visual learner and tend to buy from designers that take the time and effort to make a video to help their customers achieve good results. So thank you, for your videos, which I love to sit and watch how it all comes together before starting to sew. I find this a big bonus. I have also purchased bag hardware from you and they’ve all been fantastic quality, quick delivery time and the brushed brass is so so nice. Keep doing what you’re doing and I so look forward to purchasing more gorgeous designs from you in the future 😍

  13. Jessica Verified Owner

    This is a fabulous pattern!! The instructions are easy to follow and there are wonderdul tutorials to help explain things visually. I love making these Momexas; such a brilliant design. Thank you, Jo!!

  14. Monica

    This pattern turned out great! I would like to try my next one with Decovil instead of foam as I hope it will make the bag a little larger. Thanks for the great instructions.

  15. Katheryn Haskell

    This has been one of my absolute favourite bag patterns to date! I’ve made two, and while my second is definitely better, the instructions were so well done that you’d never guess it was the first time I made that bag.

    Instructions are SUPER helpful, you can find videos online for it if you need (I did for one little portion, super helpful), and it makes a beautiful bag. While it can be time consuming if you do all the pockets and buckles, it is pretty easy and fun! Love love love it. Used it to make the purse that I use for every outting and never had issues with it!

  16. Melissa Haynes

    I have made soooooo many Momexa bags! It is the perfect size bag!!! It fits everything I need it to without being too big! It has plenty of pockets and my favorite is the front zippered pocket that fits my large cellphone. I love crossbody bags because it keeps my hands free. Will be making many more of these!!!

  17. Nancy Verified Owner

    This bag is a great size. Not too big, but lots of pockets and space for everything. I have received so many compliments on my bag. Made it with white faux leather and rose gold hardware.

  18. Arnetta Verified Owner

    The video made it easy to make the bag. The results went were great. Got a lot of compliments.

  19. Robin Pickett Verified Owner

    This was the first bag I made a few months ago and I had absolutely no problem making it. Admittedly I watched the tutorial several times. The pattern and tutorial are so easy to follow. My hubby was so proud of it he took pictures and shared with friends and family.

  20. Janet Menec

    I loved making the Momexa bag entirely in Cork. Instructions were great and I was very pleased with the finished bag that was a gift for a family member who uses it regularly. I wouldake this bag again.

  21. Lauretta Cortez

    Very fun pattern to make and it looks so classy with the horizontal strap detail. Love it and so do the people who received the final products!

  22. Lisa Verified Owner

    Personally I like a bigger bag but having made the Lomexa I had to try this and it is a joy to sew, instructions are great and easy to follow and just like the Lomexa, I love the shape and details on this bag.

  23. Lena Goebel Verified Owner

    Made my 1st Momexa and just love it! Great pattern and love sewing along with the video tutorial. I will definitely be making another Momexa.

  24. Linda C

    I love the Momexa. Perfectly sized to carry day by day. I also purchased the Lomexa. I love to carry that when going to be out and about and may need my tablet.

  25. Laura Breyley

    I’ve made 5 of these bags and they go together so smoothly. It is such a cute and unique design with so many possibilities, I carried one all last summer! Like all Country Cow patterns, the instructions are clear, detailed and easy to follow.

  26. Michelle Verified Owner

    A brilliant pattern that makes for a cute, quirky little cross body. I did sew this on my domestic machine and she wasn’t happy with the layers. Best tip is to hammer them down and use a hump jumper lots! Overall this is a lovely pattern. The videos helped lots with this one just to see how things are done. As always we’ll written other, amazing videos and a bag I will make again.

  27. Cousettes Fantastiques

    I bought both this one and its big brother the Lomexa but have only done the Momexa for now. It was easy to sew and the result is really nice. Perfect when you have a panel you want to eminently feature. Can’t wait to do the other one with even bigger feature panels! 🙂

  28. Linda Boyle Verified Owner

    Loved making this bag. Fitted together so easily. On to my second one now, might become an addiction😊

  29. carlascakes Verified Owner

    Gorgeous bag. I made 3 of them and I will surely make more. It’s a small bag but with a lot of space inside. Jo’s patterns are so easy and clear to follow and following the video is impossible to fail.
    I just changed the front ring detail because I didn’t have the rings but the bags came out beautifully, even if I use a domestic machine.

  30. Dai Keller

    I haven’t started making the bag yet but did read the instructions and it is clearly written and have watched the You tube tutorial. Will be making it soon!

  31. Meredyth Brazell

    The pattern is well written and easy to follow. Everything fits together perfectly to create the perfect bag

  32. Cheryl Whitcomb

    I haven’t made this bag yet, but I am looking forward to it. Also have Momexa, which is in process.

  33. Dr. Gee

    Fantasticly written pattern. Easy to follow.

  34. Jenny Sanders

    Another great pattern by Country Cow Designs. Love how Jo’s patterns are so easy to follow and the lining Always fit! A very versatile bag – love it.

  35. Lorena Wheeler

    I was worried about this but when I downloaded the pattern and read the information I new it was going to be okay I did make it without the foam but I use decovil light and woven fuse 101 and I’m happy how turn out

  36. Bernice Goddard

    I loved this pattern. I make bags from a lot of different designers and I know I can always rely on Jo’s patterns to be easy to follow and have great design features. The Momexa is just the perfect size, is a fab shape and you can add zipper pockets if you wish. Definitely recommend.

  37. Gladys

    Love this pattern!

  38. Amanda Yeatts

    The Momexa is such a well written pattern complete with new tips and tricks. I really appreciate how the main zip comes together and the possibilities for variations with multiple fabrics. The YouTube video is perfect for walking through the build of this bag perfectly! Thanks for this one. I’ll be making more- Amanda

  39. Jennifer

    This is a great bag. Pet size, not too big. The pattern is easy to follow and instructions are clear and straightforward. There’s plenty of pictures and video instructions for those who like them.

  40. Colleen Marsters

  41. Debbie White

    Can’t wait to sew this pattern. Watch your video and ordered the pattern. Thank you very much for your videos. Very helpful.

  42. Gloria Varela

    This purse is just the right size. It has enough pockets for all my items I take with me. Love that it’s different then other patterns, the rings add a perfect touch to this bag. The pattern is easy to follow, the detail in this pattern is impeccable. You have to see this bag in person pictures do not give it justice..

  43. Kristina Humpleby

    Excellent crossbody bag for my needs. It’s the perfect size for me and I can’t believe I’ve sewn a bag! Instructions were easy to follow and finished product looks very professional. Hardware kits also available for this bag which make it much easier to gather supplies if you’re new to bag making.

  44. Debbie White

    Can’t wait to sew this pattern. Watch your video and ordered the pattern. Thank you very much for your videos. Very helpful.

  45. Tracy

    The bag is beautiful, the pattern is easy to follow, the tutorial is even better especially the little tips and tricks. Very domestic machine friendly. I have made two and have two more cut out. Thank you

  46. Eileen Owens

    Thank you so much for this excellent pattern! I have been making bags for a couple years but only just started using actual patterns. This is so clearly written that I have no concerns about being a total success. Love this bag!

  47. Lorraine Pascoe

    The Momexa crossbody pattern is a very cute bag to make. The pattern is written very well. Easy to fallow along with the tutorial also.

  48. Sherry Harteis

    I am a beginner and this pattern is easy to follow. The instructions are ver very clear and pictures help a lot. Plus if you have any questions they get back to you very fast.

  49. Barbara Russ

    The pattern is a resonable one to follower. I found this quite challenging but completed the bag. I needed the YouTube tutorial as I’m not a confident or experienced sewer. The hardware I used does not do justice to the bag. I will probably use this pattern again as I love the look of the bag and it a great size.

  50. J Sheppard

    This pattern was easy to follow. I just finished making it today. It is one of my best bags yet. I’m planning to make more. I used Vinyl but I will probably use fabric or a combination next time. Love, love, love!

  60. Penny Read

    Lovely design great instructions thanks

  61. Helen Grant

    Just love how this turned out !! I used a black & white houndstooth fabric and black vinyl for the base, connectors and strap. The foam was so much easier to use than Decovil light. I made the Lomexa and used the Decovil for the first time ever, I thought I had adhered it ok to my exterior fabric, but when I went to turn the bag out through the pocket, in quite a few places the decovil had come unstuck, but the foam has just kept its shape beautifully. Will certainly be making more Momexa’s for sure. Great pattern and your YOU TUBE tutorial was a real help. Thank you again for a great pattern. Helen Western Australia

  62. Carole

    I love this bag, easy to follow instructions and a great tutorial by Jo.

  63. Connie

    I love the pattern so far. I’ve only just cut out my pattern pieces but can’t wait to start sewing it together. This os my first Country Cow purchase. Thank you.
