Soft, lightweight, handmade, secure way to hold the essentials. I made this small, soft crossbody bag, or shoulder purse, for times when you just need your cellphone, billfold, keys. On one side is a quilted, padded, zippered pocket to protect cellphone or glasses; the other side has a separate zippered pocket. (There is no center opening.) What makes my purses special—besides the fabrics!—is the quilting: the purses have body, but remain very soft and lightweight because they are quilted.

It's small and light enough to just drop inside a larger purse or tote bag, for times when you need everything.

Great for quick trips to the grocery store or to walk the dog . . . and also for long-distance travel (holding passport or cash in secure zippered pockets, perhaps worn under a jacket or coat for additional security).

Makes a lovely Christmas or special occasion gift for a woman or girl—perhaps with a check, piece of jewelry, or the ever-popular cash inside.

8.5 inches high, 6.25 inches wide. Strap is long enough (51 inches) to wear easily cross-body. Strap is soft enough to just knot, if you want it shorter for a shoulder bag (or petite person). Instead of a center opening, the bag has a secure, zippered pocket on each side. Both pockets extend all the way to the top inside (about 8 inches of vertical space inside). The quilted side has a bright yellow zipper; other side has black zipper. Both zippers are 6 inches long. Lining on quilted side is black with gold polka dots; other lining is black. (Yellow ribbon on zipper pull is removable.) Outer fabric is Laurel Burch design, with coordinating black/gold polka dots. (I have no connection with Laurel Burch Co.--just love their fabrics!)

Sewing is done carefully and neatly, with reinforced stitching, in my smoke-free studio. (I do have 2 adorable dogs!) This purse is ready to ship; I will ship within 2-3 days of receiving payment.

I recommend spot cleaning or hand washing—although machine washing, especially on delicate cycle, should work out fine. Recommend letting it air dry.
