    Look at the new purse I made!!!
    Due to upper back injuries, I usually don't carry a purse that hangs on my shoulders, just a cross-body bag. I have been wanting to make one for ages, but wanted a pattern to use. I am not that competent at figuring it out on my own with purses...

    Well, at Christmas hubby got me my normal gift certificate to a LQS amongst everything else and of course, I could NOT find any fabric for ME....but the other day went in and suddenly remembered that I have been searching for a cross body bag pattern~! And, when I went through the binder with all the patterns, I was pleasantly surprised to find several for cross body bags! The one that I chose actualkly has three different sizes (good thing cause mine are usually about 4 x 6 inches and not normally any larger....
    I bought a little batik fabric (already had the fusible fleece) and had this made in a few hours! I love it and it was a lot of fun!!!
    The pattern is very adaptable, so I will be able to add an outside pocket if I want to or more inside pockets easily! I made the first one exactly as the pattern said so there would be no surprises! From what I saw, I think it used just under one yard of fabric!
    Now, I can carry pretty quilted purses in any style I like! What do you think?

    Beautiful! I love that fabric! I also have been afraid to attempt to make one, but yesterday I bought two patterns that are rated easy (and NO zipper!!), so after I get back from my overseas trip around May, I will give it a go! My hopes are that I can pull it off (NO self-confidence here!) and make 21 of them for my staff by the time I go back in August.
