I was able to join forces with some wonderful humans again to test the Emerson Crossbody Bag! I can’t wait to show you the incredible bags they made.
I was excited to see how many jumped at the opportunity to test the Emerson Crossbody and the resounding feedback was how much truly fun and easy this pattern is to make!
You can find the PDF pattern here and the paper pattern here!
Let me tell you, their bags DO NOT disappoint! This group is such a creative bunch and I am blown away any time I get to work with them. Here they are!
Katie of @crestview.quilts
Katie made this scrappy Emerson Crossbody Bag using her favourite fabrics from Cotton + Steel! Isn’t it so dang cute?! This isn’t the first bag Katie has made and she mentioned that she really appreciates the spaciousness of this one.
Mary (Mar) of @sewmaryhappy
This is the first fanny pack Mar has ever made and it turned out AH-MAZING! I’m obsessed with the scrappy, fun prints she chose. Even though she mentioned there was a bit of a learning curve, she said she would absolutely make this pattern again!
Jennifer of @jeniferdyck
Jennifer made not one, but TWO Emerson Crossbody bags! I am obsessed with the way she creatively snuck in little animals and creatures with a bit of fussy cutting. Also, the unique finishes on the insides of her bags deserve just as much attention as the outsides.
Jen of @piperautumnfabrics
Can you even handle this rainbow version that Jen made? It’s too cute for words. She used these Art Gallery Fabrics and Kona Cotton colours: AGF Banana Cream, AGF Pineapple, AGF Summer Sun, AGF Cactus Flower, AGF Very Berry, Kona Cosmos, Kona Dahlia, Kona Corsage, AGF Cosoms, AGF Rock Candy, AGF Fresh Water and AGF Mirage Blue. She even made a kit that you can snag to make your own, including all the hardware and fabric you’ll need!
Joselyn from @piecefabricco
Joselyn made this adorable Emerson bag using a mix of Essex Linen, Ruby Star Society and Art Gallery Fabrics - such a cute mashup! The best part is that Piece Fabric Co. also has kits available to make your own!
Sarai of @sarai.threadworks
Sarai made this lovely version and I absolutely LOVE IT. I especially love that she used cork fabric! She did quilted cork for the exterior and Wildwood by Rifle Paper for the interior.
Jennifer of @penelopehandmade
Last but not least, Jennifer made this adorable version using Maggie Pearl scraps! Her and her daughter are already fighting over who gets to use the bag. She’s planning on making one (or 5) more in the near future!
