I am thrilled to be able to wrap up National Sewing Month here on the Therm o’ Web blog with this fun bag. I had the pleasure of making the Crossover Carry-All with the new Vintage Made Modern Fabrics and Crossroads Denim.  I threw in a couple little of my own twists in to make it my own.

By using a contrasting thread to enhance stitched details and creating a custom flower with the fabulous lady (lets call her Millie), from the Vintage Made Modern fabric, framed by foiled lace and organza.


blog.horizontal-002After cutting the pieces as directed by the pattern I added quilted details to the side panels and the bottom. Mark the cross hatch pattern with chalk and a ruler, 1.5 -inch squares, layered StitchnSew Fleece Sew-In High Loft and StitchnSew Woven Sew-In Extra Firm on the wrong side of fabric, followed the marked lines with a contrasting threads and a lengthen your stitch (about 3.0).


Follow the pattern directions for the remainder of the bag. The directions even give an alternate strap length that I may try next time I make the Crossover Carry-All
