This is the medium size of my cross body bags styles. To me, it's the perfect everyday size. With a zipper top, a large, zippered outside pocket, an open top pocket on the back, and two open pockets on the lining, you are sure to get organized! The adjustable strap is made fairly long so you can choose the length that fits your body and preference. I used unbleached cotton for the lining so that it's not like looking into a black pit when you open your bag! It's also very easy to clean by pulling out and hand washing in the sink.
I designed all the applique images I use for this style, then hand cut them out of the vinyl, and use a reverse applique method to add color and pattern.
A lot of my vinyl bags have a Texas theme- specifically West Texas, where the high desert is home to many animals and plants that make my heart beat a little faster. One thing that is always so fascinating to me is seeing the huge turkey vultures flying overhead (hopefully not waiting for me to drop dead!). They're an underappreciated animal, and despite their weird little hot pink heads, they're beautiful birds. They also do the dirty work of cleaning up road kill. For this applique, I used a dark brown vinyl for the body, hot pink vinyl for the wee little head, and a tiny bit of pearlized cream vinyl for the beak. The front panel (which is a big pocket) is made with a lovely color of turquoise vinyl (the main photo shows the color more accurately, I couldn't color-correct the bottom shot!)

Most items are made to order, so I do need a little time to cut out and sew your new bag! If it's already made, I will get it in the mail as quickly as possible. If you need something faster than my shipping time of 1-2 weeks*, please convo me so I'm aware of it. I appreciate your patience, it's only me running this show and I try to hustle, but I also want to make sure I have time to make the best possible purse for you. * Please remember the shipping schedule is 1-2 weeks beginning the day after the order is placed. You will receive an email with your usps tracking number as soon as it's on the way!
Please contact me if there is any reason you want to return an item, and if it's damaged or flawed--- I really, really want to fix it for you! I try to run quality control over here, but sometimes I miss stuff! I do my best to make sturdy bags that can be loved for years. For exchanges, I ask that you pay for the shipping to return it to me, and for the shipping of the item you want in place of the returned item.
I do not do custom orders, but if you have a suggestion for a bag that falls within the designs I have, please feel free to contact me and we'll discuss it! I've had some wonderful ideas come from customers!
