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 this region tough and beautiful. Vultures are awesome- huge wing spans make them spectacular to see high up in the sky, riding the winds looking for their next dinner. I cut a Western-style yoke for the front of this one- cutting out the vulture design to show the turquoise vinly behind it, then top stitched around the bird to keep it all together.
