Great cross body bag

Love this little purse. I love that it has card pockets. My phone fits inside (and I have a large phone) so it's all I need when I'm going out. I'll be making more of these.

Bag for Everything

Well, I haven't sewn this bag yet. I was looking for a bag that would work for my 5 grandsons. A bag that would be okay to carry all their electronics. But, as soon as I get one made, I will share with you. I do have 2 granddaughters and they are pretty much covered. They get masks and bags to match their clothes.
