Sewing: Crossbody Purse #2

Well, the $17.95 pattern download for the Lexi Carryall Purse from Lazy Girl Designs has dropped to $8.98 PER USE for me (and I also bought fabric for a 3rd bag to bring the per use price to $5.98). Here's the LINK for my first purse.

I made some minor changes to this one. It calls for some of the pieces to have fusible fleece. I didn't use any fleece on this but a medium weight fusible interfacing. It has enough structure to stand on its own. I only interfaced half of the inside pocket pieces (not shown). The pattern calls for a layer of fusible fleece for the strap. I used a layer of lightweight interfacing on the strap of the first bag. It is always twisting because it doesn't have enough body. I used double medium weight interfacing for the strap this time.

I order the 30" purse zippers HERE.

I decided to use all of one fabric for the exterior and a solid hunter green for the lining and pockets. Yes, I did BUY fabric for this. Thought it would be a nice look for fall.

I changed my dining room light bulbs from soft light to daylight and I think the colors are truer when I photograph now.

I love it! You did a great job and saved a lot of money. I have a similar one that I got on clearance, but the regular price is $70.00.
