So I have finally made a bag from real leather. OMG I love it.
The Nellie Cross Body Bag is a new design coming soon to my website.
This bag can also be made from cotton fabric and faux leather too. A perfect size for the essentials, but with enough room for extras. 9" H x 9" W x 3" D (23cm x 23cm x 7.5cm)
A zip pocket in the lining as well a magnetic snap closure makes this bag suitable for a beginner as well as advanced sewers. The front of the bag has a ‘split panel’ with topstitching, to give some interest and detail.
Nellie is fast to make and will suit all ages.
The bag in these photos has no hardware, but if you like you can add strap anchors with D rings and an adjustable strap slider.
I used beautiful soft Hunter Green leather for the exterior and a beautiful peacock feather design quilting cotton fabric for the lining.
The pattern will be released soon.
