I've completed a new design for the new year. It's a messenger style bag with a rounded flap and an adjustable strap. The one above is made from a very thick 6 wale cotton corduroy in a rich steel grey. It will be available in my shop today for a special introductory price since it's my first sample. It's 11" tall, 10.5" wide, 2.5" deep and has two interior pockets. The strap length is adjustable from 29.5" to 48.5" so you can wear it as a shoulder bag or across the body messenger style! I still plan to make a few minor adjustments to the design such as making it a bit deeper. Also, I plan to make some without the adjustable strap depending on the fabric used. I have to admit it was difficult sewing the adjustable strap using the thick 6 wale corduroy.
Right now in the studio I've got some semi-circle purses , a messenger and a wayfarer purse all being made from corduroy in progress. I'll post a sneak preview before they become available in my shop. Hope everyone is having a good new year!
