Work in Progress: Crossbody Bag

Monday, September 19, 2011


Crossbody bags have been around for forever,  but lately it seems like they are gaining momentum in the fashion world.  They're in magazine after magazine, street style photography, and it seems like online retailers have beefed up their virtual shelves with a wider selection of crossbody bags.

So this is the next project on my sewing table.   I've been drafting and re-drafting patterns, sewing and re-sewing and I think I'm pretty close to what I really want out of this bag.   Anywho, who do you guys feel about crossbody bags?
