So I've been "into" making some foldover convertible bags, that can be carried with a handle or crossbody. Here are a a few I've made recently








Any comments welcome!

these are cool, I'm a huge fan of double duty bags!  The third one is extra nifty with the triangle cutouts Cheesy

They are all really nice, but that triangle design is great! Really stylish and interesting.

Thanks! I can't take full credit for the triangular one.  I saw something similiar online (manufactured not handmade) and that was the inspiration for it..

That triangular part of the bag was the hardest to do and took a while to figure out, and I'm not completely happy with it and would try to do it differently next time.. the rest of the bag was pretty easy - Jordy style bag.

Great idea. I love them all but the triangular cut out is very stylish.

I agree about liking the triangle one best - that way when you carry it crossbody, there are no other straps hanging down.  And it just looks really sharp.  Great job!  Smiley
