bottom width: 3"
zipper lengths = 8.5"
adjustable strap from 34"–59" ** size it to fit a child, wear it super long or short! So many ways!
This cute little nugget of a bag is deceivingly roomy. The bottom is 3 inches wide so quite a bit of stuff fits in it! The top zips shut, there's an outer zipper pocket, and a large, open back pocket for slipping your phone and other things you want to get to quickly. With an adjustable strap that lengthens from 34" to 59", it can be adjusted for many desired lengths.
The outer pocket is made from vinyl that I hand cut and top stitched in a reverse applique method - making the whole bag vinyl except for the cotton lining. The lining is unbleached cotton to allow lightness inside for easy purse digging. You know what I'm sayin.
Roadrunners are gorgeous birds-- otherwise known as "fast running ground cuckoos"! I've had the good fortune to encounter them up close, usually they're eye-balling some snack I'm eating. I made this applique using a patterned vinyl to try to give the feather area some interest- though nothing compares to the intricate and gorgeous patterns and colors on a real roadrunner. I made his stance less hectic than you usually see- he's just walking around looking for a bug or a crumb from your campsite.
