First up is the Rosie Crossbody Bag--such a cutie--need I say anymore? She's the perfect size and I really have come to love the hands-free style of a cross-body bag. It just makes sense when trying to keep track of everyone and everything. :) My favorite feature is that little zipper pocket on the back. It's a nice and secure space to keep something that you need to be able to grab easily--cell phone, chap stick, gift cards, you get the picture. I enjoyed embellishing the front flap--makes it pretty unique and cute too.
Up next is the India Hobo (also from Swoon patterns). I seriously am trying to sew the patterns that I own, although I have been tempted on more than 1 occasion to buy a new one. Then I quickly remember my sewing resolutions and back away from the computer. :) I like India, but I like Rosie better. Not sure yet if this will make it to the gift pile or if I will end up keeping her. Or maybe I will sell her. That way I could build my stash just a little bit...
India is a crossbody bag as well and here's the real surprise: she's reversible! That's totally cool if you are into that kind of thing. India is seriously a quick and easy sew. I especially like the zippered pocket on the outside and then again on the inside. It's a cute design element on top of the slip pocket.
