I've had this sweet little double zip crossbody bag on my drawing board for a year now. Guys...a year. Procrastination much? I don't know if I can quite call it that or just that this pattern has stumped me and I just needed to set it aside and let it simmer.
Sometimes, I know exactly what I want to say but it's hard to put into words which is what I have found while I've been writing this pattern with one particular step.
Now I need your help. Would you be willing to give it a go? I'd like to send this in PDF form to a few testers and see if my words make sense enough that you can recreate this bag.
Quite frankly, the double zipper is awesome. The lower part is perfect to slide your cell phone into. The center pocket is the remainder size of the bag and fits a little notebook perfectly. And I always have a nice little notebook and pen set I carry around.
I am a total OFFICE SUPPLY junkie. If you ever want to know what to get me for my birthday - it would be something like THIS. No joke. (and no, this is not an affiliate link) I love office supplies. So I do in fact carry THESE (I have 2 sets. One for my use. One I let the Sprout use on the road.) and a notebook all the time. I often give notebooks as gifts and pens. Everyone in my office knows of my sincere love of office supplies and knows I hoard all the good pens. It makes me happy. Serious as a heart attack happy. I'm not sure what that all really has to do with this bag but my birthday is in exactly 20 days, cough, cough. Just saying....
If you're interested in testing this bag, leave me a comment below and I'll be in touch. Thanks gang!
