This is my first post and these are my first attempts at small crossbody bags, which I love.  I share them with some trepidation as I've monitored the site since last year and know what great work is shown here.  I chose upholstery fabrics for their durability and beautiful patterns.  These three fabrics made me think of paintings - that's why I framed the small piece on the brown bag.  I hope Ive presented them effectively.   Ill be trying the dropped top zipper recently shown by Gatchley in her excellent tutorial.



The multicolred bag has a top zipper and straps sewn between the body and lining.







The brown bag has a front zipper opening with the strap attached at the top.





The grey has a magnetic snap.  Not my favorite for such a small bag, for security reasons.





This has really been a learning curve for me, as I created them on the fly and tried to deal with the frustrating problems as they arose.  Also learning to post on the forum.

Thanks for looking.  Comments/suggestions would be appreciated.

Nice job on your bags.  Smiley I like the fabric in the first one and I like the way you framed the fabric in the second.
