Sew the Traverse Cross-body Bag – £90

Fridays 2nd and 9th March: 10-2.30 – £90

The Traverse bag by Noodlehead is a great-looking, versatile cross-body bag. There is a choice of two sizes – regular or mini and both feature the following:  A zippered main compartment; a front pocket with an easy access flap with snap closure; a back zipped pocket and an internal slip pocket. Make your bag ‘pop’ with a contrast piping and adjustable strap. The pattern includes instructions for making the strap from fabric, but you can also choose to use a sturdy cotton webbing.

The materials required are listed below, taken directly from the pattern. If you have any difficulties sourcing zips and hardware just get in touch by email and I’m sure I can help. The pattern will be provided within the cost of the workshop.
