Momexa – PDF Sewing Pattern

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.

  1. 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.

  2. Carole

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

  3. 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

    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.

    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..

    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!

  15. 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.
