The Sadie Crossbag is a bag that is easy enough for beginners to make. The special thing about it is that the overall feel of the bag differs depending on how you tie the shoulder strap- long or short. Keeping it as a crossbag with a long strap will give this bag a tomboy feel, whereas tying a ribbon lower down on the straps will give it a cute and feminine feel. The bag is also spacious because of its size and the darts in its design, and is great as a grab-and-go bag on an afternoon trip. The Sadie Crossbag may be made into a slight variation by omitting the flap piece and attaching a magnetic snap for the closing. This alternative will result in an equally pretty bag.
