Here's one I made earlier!
Elizabeth of Quilt Angel Creations used Alaskan batiks for her French Braid flap, and sewed on some charms for a little extra bag bling:
Lynne of Lynne's Selections made her Crossbody Bag bright and bold:
And, Chris of Made by Chrissy's bag is somewhere over the rainbow!
Alice of Alice Wyse Handmade used tweeds for her Crossbody Bag flap, giving it a warm and cosy feel :
Leanne of Crafted by Leanne also went for a warm and cosy theme, using Harris Tweed to piece the flap of her Crossbody Bag:
Anna made two versions of her Crossbody Bag. First, using the quilt as you go French braid technique from our bag sewing pattern:
And, then, Anna made a flap using Foundation Paper Piecing (FPP). Anna told us this is a stylised version of a local soccer club's logo. We think it looks quite art deco!
Rebecca also made multiple versions of her bag. In her first version, Rebecca used bright and bold piecing against a dark main to emphasise the quilting on the flap of her Crossbody Bag:
And, then, Rebecca made an enlarged version, printing the pattern at 125%:
Laura of Totes Adorbs pieced together her quilt as you go panel points up, for an interesting effect on her Crossbody Bag flap:
And, Lynn of She Wears Red Feathers turned her French Braid quilt as you go panel 90 degrees, which gives an almost woven effect to the flap of her Crossbody Bag:
Some of our testers chose to use different techniques for the flaps of their Crossbody Bags. Lynn of LBP Bespoke Bags used diagonal stripes:
And some of our testers made the Crossbody Bag flap plain, as a way to highlight their feature fabrics. Susan used this beautiful blue that reminds of us the seaside:
