What was your inspiration?
I needed a new cross-body bag. I saw the grey batik fabric at a Stitch and Hobby show and knew that it was just what I wanted for my bag - after the stitching was added, of course. I'm totally addicted to Stupendous Stitching now and I can see it going on everything possible!
What are you most proud of?
Adding the 'inset' zip at the top of the bag. I've only done ones before that have been flush with the top of the bag but I wanted this to be hidden. Lots of trial and error but I got there in the end! I also added a small zipped pocket on the back of the bag for my credit cards/money.
