Crossbody Bag

And we continue the blog-a-versary with a new bag! Some of you may remember this post I wrote a while back about a bag I made out of vinyl. For the past few months (ok it’s been like a year) I have been trying to recreate this bag. That vinyl must have been a special treasure because I could not find a similar texture anywhere I looked! I’ve tried multiple times to make another version out of vinyl but there was always an issue. I knew I had to try a different fabric, but still wanted something sturdy and bold. That’s where canvas came in. I found some beautiful colors and decided to give it a go! AND IT WORKED.

The shape of this bag is perfect. The color is everything I could hope for. I am SO HAPPY with how this came together. It is the most labor intense bag I make, and has the most hardware so it takes time to put together but it’s worth it. This bag features an adjustable strap, turn lock close and interior slip pocket.

The crossbody is my favorite style bag, as I love just throwing it over my chest and going. The size is also ideal because it is large enough to fit all your daily essentials (sunglasses, phone, small wallet and keys) but small enough that you can’t “garbage it up” with things you don’t need.

I decided to start making these in solids and adding florals to the lining-because I can’t make a bag without florals!
