The Cross-Body Bag
I purchased grey suede, as I couldn't find waxed canvas, or even plain canvas at our local fabric shop, so we will see how that goes!
This waxed look is really appealing, so I will be purchasing the waxed canvas on-line, or a bar to wax the fabric myself. You can make the bag first then wax it, but I think I would prefer to do it while the fabric is on a flat surface.
Mariah is a excellent instructor, and takes you through each step, giving you all the information you need to know, plus!! She's easy to follow and thorough.
The bag is so darn cute! It is not a difficult pattern at all, and would be easy to whip up several of these in a short period of time, even for the novice!! The inside pocket is divided in a unique but simple way.
My bag pieces are all cut and the batting added to each piece, and now I will interface the pieces as well. As usual, I'm missing a key element, the zipper pull in silver. I have antique brass and gold only. Wouldn't you know it! Zipper pulls are ordered, but they won't arrive until next week!
