I used quilting fabrics. The print is from Bo Bunny's Detour Collection. I was waiting for the right bag for this fabric and I thought this one was very appropriate. The truth is I only used a fat quarter of the print. I used a black Kona cotton for the contrast. The interfacings used were Pellon Woven Fusible SF101 and Pellon Thermolam Plus.
As you can see the bag has some very useful exterior pockets: one zippered, one slip, and inside this one there's a cellphone pocket. So you'll have space for keys, cellphone and any other stuff you want to have very accessible. The 1" strap is adjustable so it can be used as a shoulder or cross body bag. The main compartment closes with a zipper to keep your belongings secured. I decorated the zippers with some polymer clay beads I had around.
Pink Chalk Studio, who sadly is going out of business and has a good sale going on; check it out. For strap I used a 1-1/2" wide webbing and some canvas fabric at the bottom.
While cutting this second one I got carried away and cut some more. Here they are:

Look at the beautiful Bird on the back:
I've given some TLC to my shop and have a new banner. New business cards are ordered. I'm trying to increase views and sales by working on my tags and titles and participating in the forums. It's hard to be seen with so many bag shops. No sales since September but my views have gone up. Let's see what happens and when. I need to sell to buy more material of course.
I hope you enjoyed my bags.
