This shoulder bag was inspired by a trip to The Outer Banks and its serene beaches. The colors and textures capture the warm sand, tranquil waters, and fresh clean breezes. Worked in a simple, interesting stitch combination, this bag is easy to create, without being tedious or boring. Front and back panels are made separately from one-piece gusset, then sewn together, making this an ideal project to work on-the-go. Stitches are solid, without gaps. Lined or unlined…it’s up to you.
