Electronic Device Crossbody Bag


Electronic Device Crossbody Bag

I have a new bag to show you today! This bag was made from a McCall's Pattern (M6477).  I purchased this specific pattern because I have an interest in crossbody iPad bags.  This pattern, in paticular, contains patterns for carrying cases for electronic devices in two sizes and e-reader covers in three sizes.  For this project, I chose to go with the larger carrying case (9" x 11" x 1 1/2").

The closure for this bag is a simple Velcro strip sewn into the exterior of the bottom of the bag and to the flap.

The pattern also called for a decorative button and a strip of ric rac trim for the closing flap.

The inside has two pockets and there is even a pocket in the front that easily can hold my little flip phone, but I'm sure it would hold an iPhone, as well.  The bummer is that I do not have an iPad to show you how it looks in the bag!

This is a very basic bag and would be great for a beginner sewest.  You will get the chance with this pattern to use fusible fleece and fusible interfacing, as well.  

This bag has been donated to a local school for a fundraiser.  It will be part of a silent auction! 

Have you guys come across any cool crossbody bags lately?  They seem to be popular with the tweens-teens.  I think the tweens-teens would be my target audience for the electronic carrying bags.

Love bags?  Check out all the bags I have created on my Pinterest Board-Gina's Craft Corner Bags, located at the very top of my sidebar.

Have a great week!
