I think it's my favorite Curvalicious pattern. Some of you may have seen it either at my quilt guild or at the Syracuse AQS show. I created it for my river cruise to France last Spring. In the country I wore it as a backpack and when we hit Paris, I switched it to a crossbody bag. Either way my hands were free.
There is a hook on the strap and a D-ring at the bottom of the bag. To make the change, lengthen the strap and connect the hook to the d-ring. Abbracaddabra!
To change it from the backpack back to a crossbody bag, unclip the swivel hook and then shorten the strap.
Since I designed it for travel, there is a pocket big enough for my tablet on one side and then pockets to hold my phone, a couple of pens and ???? I made it the right size - not too big, not too small - to also carry my camera, sketchbook, wallet (of course) and my passport.
There have been so many pattern requests, that I have been working on one for about a month. The owner of the Round Bobbin,
There's a class preview party this Saturday. I think that's when sign ups begin. The class will be two sessions - 11/21 and 12/6. If you're interested you should call the shop for the particulars. The number is 215-367-5596.
I apologize for the lack of color in the photos. The anemic looking fabric is my favorite color chartreuse. The same thing happened with the backpack to follow. I don't think my iphone likes green. Hrmph.
In the meantime, there's a wonderful quilter and friend that is testing the pattern. She finished in record time and gave me a bunch of notes. After I make the changes/clarifications, I will send it to the printer. I will post it as soon as it's available for sale.I will put it on my etsy shop and it will include the backpack hardware.
