The Kaitlyn Crossbody Purse, pattern by Kandou Crafts is fully lined, has 2 exterior slip pockets and one exterior zip pocket on the front that is perfect for your phone.  Plus one interior zip pocket for additional security.

You can sew your own adjustable strap for this bag to wear as a shoulder bag, cinch it up short to carry by hand as a purse, or extend the strap out long and carry it as a crossbody bag.
