height: 9 inches
bottom width: 3"
top zipper length = 11"
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.
Even though this applique is a lot of work, I had to do a bluebonnet! Come on, I'm from Texas! It's a labor of love... the reverse applique was done using a mixture of types of vinyl, including floral oil cloth to give it some depth- I love all the blues! The front panel (which is a big pocket) is made with black vinyl- as well as the rest of the purse. For this version I used a dark red vinyl for the stem instead of green- the red picks up the bits of dark red in the blue oil cloth I used for the flower part!
