I have been working on a couple of new designs. I was asked to make a cross body bag for a birthday present and this is the first design. I have too many ideas to try out sometimes and an ample fabric stash.
The bag measures 15″ x 8″ and is 3 1/2″ deep and has 2 big pockets on the front of the bag. Very good size if you like a larger handbag.
On the back of the bag I have made a double welt pocket with contrasting fabric and a zipper.
The bag has a recessed zipper closure that turned out really nicely.
The bag is lined of course with an open pocket, divided into two sections and a zipper pocket.
This might not be the birthday present but it will most likely become a pattern and I will do a tutorial on how to do the zippered double welt pocket in the near future.
Until next time take care and happy sewing!
