Houses Crossbody Bag


Looks like my peanut butter with bananas sandwich in the morning has turned me into a new person. I made another bag! That on top of watching all my favourite TV shows - Law & Order LA, Law & Order SVU, Modern Family, How I Met Your Mother, Fringe, The Big Bang Theory, America's Next Top Model and 30 Rock.
Yep, I used my cotton canvas ricco-ricco fabric by Kiyohara again. I really like the idea of using up all my print fabric because I don't like having fabric remnants lying around. It's okay to have solids remnants because these could be used again in other bags. But some prints are not as easy to mix and match. I was hoping to use up most of the ricco-ricco fabric but looks like there's room for another smallish bag.
Velcro is my least favourite closure but this is the kind of bag that's suitable for velcro. Besides, I actually have the right shade of velcro! While making the bag, I felt that it was a pity I did not have enough fabric to make the bag deeper. My instinct is often to make as deep a bag as I could possibly get away with. But looking at the finished product, I'm rather happy I didn't make it too deep.

This is my last bag for the week. This weekend I'll be selling my bags at MAAD in Singapore. Details below. Next week, I'm attempting some new bags plus my MAAD post-mortem. So see you again.

Another winner! That fabric is divine and would most likely turn any bag pattern into a stunning bag! Or it could be your talents!
