I started with a small panel of piecing to use for the front pocket. Paired it with some Essex linen and some hand stitching to make a fun and distinctive bag.
Added some accent handles and some hardware and some patchwork detail on the back.
Inside is a multitude of pockets, both zipped and slip. The top also has a zipper to hold contents in securely.
It can be carried by the short handles over the arm or worn cross body as a messenger, resulting in this "fold over" look:
Wish I had planned and taken some pictures of it "worn" before it was gifted but all I have are these iPhone bathroom shots, complete with sweat pants full of thread, lol!
Love this bag.
It was loved by my friend, and I am happy to know we will be sporting sister bags even when we are across the country from each other xoxo
