Productive weekend in studio, made some flap bags with adjustable straps, and magnet snaps! Finished these in time to avoid the rain 🙂 Preparing for Blue Genie Art Bazaar, November 24-December 24.

I had a bag of similar size in olive canvas I used for years, which finally wore out after 15+ years, and I realized since I found this size/bag so useful, it might work well for others. There is a back shelf pocket, a pen pocket in the side gusset, a patch pocket inside on the lining, and the strap is adjustable (from 50″ to 30″) so you could wear it on a shoulder or cross-body, and so it would fit people of different sizes. There is a snap tab at the top of main compartment, and two magnet snaps to close the flap. I’ve worked out the pattern after making a few, so I’ll be making more asap. Road-testing one now to make sure I’m happy with design.
