Autumnal Stripes Cross Body Bag by Deby Coles Mark VII

cbb no 7 front   cbb no 7 reverse

You may be thinking that this fabric is never-ending but I promise that I am now down to the last few scraps which I will use to make a scissor case and pin cushion.

For this bag I used a magnetic snap fastener which does not “interfere” with the stripes of the printed cotton. I now have three sample bags which demonstrate different methods of closure:- tuck lock, twist lock and this magnetic snap. The remaining “hardware” on the bag  has a brass finish, two D rings, two swivel clip hooks and a strap adjuster.  I used a bright Tangerine zip fastener on the reverse pocket and inside the linings are made from Cream curtain lining from my stash. The zip inside is a neutral beige.

The colours and print of the outside of the bag are very BOLD so it won’t be easy to hide in a crowd or get mislaid!

Next project on the list is to cut and part-make three bags as “Blue Peter” demonstration examples for the workshop…….
