    Cross body bag

    Most of my clothes do not have pockets so when out walking I find carrying my phone, water etc a problem. No more after making myself a small crossbody bag. Again the fabric is leftover from another project and I took the strap off another bigger bag that is no longer used.

    Very useful and a great way to use up fabric and to recycle unwanted items.

    A local charity shop sells off old bags for 1, a great price for cannibalising for the buckles, metal rings, webbing etc.

    Thank you SusieQOH. I am enjoying making smaller and hopefully useful items. My sewing has taken a different direction this year and I am enjoying following it.

    Twisted mind here. I was thinking a body bag for human remains with angry appliques. Not certain why one would want one.

    My mind travelled along that path at first as well, leonf....

    This is a really nice bag and in the summer this is the only type of bag I carry. I'll have to look into this sort of pattern.

    Great idea. I use a thin theft proof bag when we go to festivals and concerts. Your bag looks much nicer and eaiser on the neck. Thanks for posting.

    I get bags/purses for .25 each to take them apart and have bought clothing for .25 for the zippers.
