This Alexander Henty fabric, "African Queen", is 100 % cotton , and hard to find , making this a limited edition ! The reverse is a heavier black cotton duck. The bag measures 35" from tied ends of (adjustable) strap to bottom of bag. The bag itself is 9.5" wide by 10.5" high. The bright colors are enhanced by the nickel colored keychain and coordinating bagcharms.

If your shoulder (or back) has been bothering you, possibly from that bulky bag you're hauling around, why not try this crossbody approach ? College students around here find it leaves their hand free to ride a bike to class, carry books, text, and shop (not all at once, we hope.) Now their mothers are catching on. No more leaving your bag somewhere (like a shopping cart) or having somebody grab it while you're not looking, because you are WEARING it, not CARRYING it. Plus, all that weight is hanging more evenly across your body than just dragging one side down. (Get it ? "Crossbody"!)

All of my crossbody bags are REVERSIBLE and WASHABLE. All fabrics were washed prior to assembly. Unclip the keychain before washing /drying on Warm. (Normal or Delicate setting )

Each has a one-of-a-kind, HANDMADE BY ME, dual-purpose KEYCHAIN / BAGCHARM : (1) The decorative outer part has enough weight to keep the bag from flopping open when you wear it, eliminating the need for a zipper. (We all know the zipper is the first thing to go.) (2) The large inside clasp is where you hook your keys, then throw them in the bag. No more searching for them----just fish them out with the chain.

NO POCKETS ! Installing them gives me a headache, and I would have to raise my prices if I put one in every bag. But, for those of you who MUST HAVE a pocket, I do make small zippered pouches from bag remnants (to coordinate) . Each "ADD - A - POCKET" has a key ring attached, so you can hook it to the chain and---you got it--throw it in the bag and fish it out again with the chain. Most are large enough for my Android phone, and sell for a measly $3.00, shipping (with your bag) included. Use for cosmetics, change purse, phone, etc

While you're here, please look around my shop. You will find a variety od REVERSIBLE, WASHABLE, ECONOMICAL BAGS and the "ADD - A - POCKETS" to go with them, MEN'S and WOMEN'S APRONS, and lot of "JUST WARM ENOUGH" FLEECE VESTS.
Remember, when you buy from local craftspeople, you are buying "Made in America" !

Enjoy your handmade bag ! Thank you for looking !
