The Miriam is a simple shoulder/crossbody bag style with plenty of pockets and room for everything you need. With a front slip and zipper pocket panel, you can feature some fabulous fabrics, zippers and pulls.
Designed for ease of assembly, this can be made with any fabrics/stabilizers combos that your domestic or industrial machine can handle. Minimal hardware required on this one so you can have fun sewing a great crossbody or shoulder purse without breaking the bank with expensive fancy hardware. But don’t worry, it still has all the features you need for a great everyday bag to sew and wear.
This bag sews up well in all fabrics and materials. Use some pretty quilting cottons for a splash of color, or try waterproof canvas to make it hardwearing. This bag looks great with vinyl, or vinyl mixed with cotton prints too.
Sizing info: Finished size is 11″ high by 10″ wide by 3″ deep.
