Shopper Vanessa is a beautiful and practical tote bag for everyday use. You can do your shopping with it, but it’s also a loyal companion for a stroll through town, lunch with the girls, or for taking to work.
There are carrying straps and a removable and adjustable shoulder strap. If you like, you can also sew the Vanessa as a crossbody bag. In this tutorial you will also find a large number of possibilities to customise the bag according to your taste.
The pockets on the outside can be beautifully accentuated with contrasting fabrics, or pick a favorite feature print or panel to showcase there. One of our example images even shows the front completed with the rear and pockets from an old pair of jeans! A genius way to reuse fabric and create a real taking point.
