I was told by my physical therapist to stop carrying around a too heavy handbag on my shoulders. It is causing me to lean a bit lopsided on my new hip. So, I decided to make a cross body bag, using some favorite aboriginal designed fabric. There is an inside pocket for my cell phone and enough room for my wallet, glasses, and tissues.
Because I only had fat quarters, I had to use different fabrics for each section. I like the scrappy look anyway. This is the other side of the bag.
Also, the pattern called for grommets…after trying a few times, I gave up and crocheted around some rings and sewed them on over the botched up holes I made…turned out to be my favorite part of the bag!
I really didn’t like that I had to cover the inside seams with bias binding so I am looking for recommendations for a better pattern if you have used one!
