adjustable strap from 34"–62" ** size it to fit a child, wear it super long or short! So many ways!
This is the medium size of my cross body bags styles. To me, it's the perfect everyday size. With a zipper top, a large, zippered outside pocket, an open top pocket on the back, and two open pockets on the lining, you are sure to get organized! The adjustable strap is made fairly long so you can choose the length that fits your body and preference. I used unbleached cotton for the lining so that it's not like looking into a black pit when you open your bag! It's also very easy to clean by pulling out and hand washing in the sink.
I designed all the applique images I use for this style, then hand cut them out of the vinyl, and use a reverse applique method to add color and pattern.
A lot of my vinyl bags have a Texas theme- specifically West Texas, where the high desert is home to many animals and plants that make my heart beat a little faster. One thing that is always so fascinating to me is seeing the huge turkey vultures flying overhead (hopefully not waiting for me to drop dead!). They're an underappreciated animal, and despite their weird little hot pink heads, they're beautiful birds. They also do the dirty work of cleaning up road kill. For this applique I used a dark brown vinyl for the body, hot pink vinyl for the wee little head, and a tiny bit of pearlized cream vinyl for the beak. The front panel (which is a big pocket) is made with a turquoise colored vinyl that looks beautiful with the brown!
