Character Baguette Felted Cross Body Pack or Handbag

A simple shape you can carry anywhere and carry anything in.

Difficulty: Easy

I was inspired by the fanny pack when I made this purse, but I wanted something that was softer and that could be worn like a shoulder bag, or a traditional fanny pack, and could also be worn as a soft, squashy cross body bag. 

I love the versatility of this little pouch. Rivet the handle onto the purse end for a lighter, entirely different look. 

Attach a JUL Flat Strap forager with chicago screws and you have yet another silhoette. Make a shorter handle out of a sleek, glossy fabric, sew it on with beaded stitches, decorate the purse with fabric roses, and all of a sudden you have a unique evening purse.
