Small cross-body bag


New lifestyle, new bag. With a new bub I don’t have my hands free to carry a purse but don’t always want my essentials stuffed into the bag with nappies etc. So a small cross-body seems just right. This was speedily whipped up over a couple of sewing sessions often halted by cries.
It is big enough for purse (flat, slender, fabric pouch I made but haven’t blogged), sunglasses, phone, keys, and lipstick – the essentials. There is one inside pocket for my phone so the screen doesn’t get scratched by the keys and is fast to pull out.
The photo makes it look a bit uneven, but it isn’t.
I’m super pleased with this bag as I like how it looks etc, but mostly it was satisfying to be productive when much of my day and night is spent holding a newborn who cries when put down.

    It looks sturdy and cute – where did you get that clip? Hope you are getting enough sleep while your new one adjusts to being part of the world ;o)
