Oh my I love this cross body zippered tote. I love that it is made with different strips of fabric to give ita different look and this is a great way to use those leftover pieces of fabric or even jelly roll strips since they are 2 1/2" strips. With this tutorial it makes this so easy to sew. It even gives great pictures to show how to sew zipper in. This is good for a beginner too. The cross over bag will make a great gift too but make sure you keep one for yourself.
