Great beginner bag!
This bag pattern doesn't require a lot of hardware and is great for those who are dipping their toes into zipper prep. It has multiple options for customization (the flat lay designs lends itself perfectly to applique work), making this mini crossbody a versatile and fun pattern.
The outside of this pattern is designed for use with cork, vinyl, thin leather, or kraftex, however with some additional interfacing and imagination it can easily be converted to use all cotton throughout.
