July started with a bang…..my brothers wedding followed by loads and loads of sewing to do!!!! I am all thrilled to show back to back testing bags and many new patterns lined up this month…. I am gonna enjoy the learning 🙂
First thing I picked was Katie’s Crossbody Bag… As promised by Susan this was a QUICK SEW…..With only 3 hrs in hand every day morning, I was able to cut and finish sewing before I head back to pick my daughter back from school. (I am definitely not a fast sewer)
Loved the simple flap closure with a Twist lock or Magnetic Snap… I used a Twist Lock.
Chose one of my favorite Purple black combo and other with pleasing blue with splash of color flowers
Made a bag zipper instead of the pocket as mentioned in the pattern
The inside can Hold 6 Cards, one back pocket for holding cash/cheque book. The bag can easily hold a phone and keys. It measures (9.5″ X 6″ approximately)
Just imagine my excitement when it can hold a Rs1000 note without getting folded (Indians can understand what I am referring to)
This is a easy go bag not just in making but also in carrying ….. Easy to grab n go to pick my daughter every day with all my essentials inside.
