Luna Crossbody Bag - Pattern Test

It was such an honor to be selected to join the Pattern Scout - Luna Crossbody testing group, and I love how my new cross body bag turned out!

As soon as I read the sewing instructions and learned that this pattern called for canvas I had just the right fabric in mind. I found this Rifle Paper Co. floral canvas at my local quilt shop and immediately fell head-over-heels. This small piece of fabric, purchased about a year ago, began my love affair with RPC! But it was such a small piece that I hadn't found the right project for it until this moment.

I also added some black duck canvas for an exterior piece and strap as well as some light pink quilting cotton for the lining and interior pockets. I finished the purse with a hardware kit from Pattern Scout.

I loved how quickly this bag came together. It instantly felt rewarding because I could see it taking shape. There are about five pattern pieces and they are small in size so this is an easy pattern to print at home. And I love Casey's illustrations, which made the whole project go smoothly!

The Luna Crossbody is the perfect size bag for all of my quick trips and errands with three pockets, four card holder slots, and an adjustable shoulder strap. Plus I'm just loving the fabric combinations and gold accents. My mother has already asked for her own version!

I had such an absolutely fabulous experience sewing up my first pattern test for Pattern Scout - the Luna Crossbody. I was originally excited just to be selected and soon found so much additional value in doing a small sew-along with other sewists and sharing real-time feedback. You can have the same experience by joining the Luna Crossbody sew-along!
