This is the third Gatherer's Crossbody bag I have made using Noodlehead's free pattern.
This one is made for my swap gift for the Stash Sewciety Retreat I am attending this week.
I used the new Art Gallery Fabric Denims to make the outside of the bag.
The lining is a print from Karen Lewis' Blueberry Park collection in one of my favorite colors.
I also made a little card and cash zip pouch, with an outside vinyl pocket, for a driver's license.
We are having a blind swap, and out of the 16 ladies attending, I don't think many are participating. I hope the person who gets this bag will like it as much as I do. I like smaller bags and this one is the perfect size for me.
I made a few changes to the pattern:
- I quilted the back of the bag and the contrasting flap.
- I added an inserted zipper pocket to the back of the bag.
- Instead of tying the strap to the loops, I attached it with rivets. I like that look a lot.
