cotton fabrics, batting, heavy interfacing behind tabs, magnetic snaps, zipper
What was your inspiration?
I often make string-patched blocks for my quilts and decided that one would be fun for a cross-body bag, as well.
What are you most proud of?
I tried a different quilting pattern than I usually use on string-quilt patterns, and am quite pleased with it.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
It is an easy design to do without a pattern. Anyone with just a little sewing experience can probably think it through. I did put a very heavy interfacing behind the dark blue tabs to which I attached the magnetic snaps for extra strength.
