bag series: the crossway convertible bag

Allow us to (re)introduce the Crossway Bag by our in-house brand, Studio M Squared! The Crossway is a clever, modern bag that does it all! You can carry it with both straps slung over your shoulder or have the option to wear as a backpack. We designed the Crossway as a knitting project bag, but its two different sizes (small or large) makes it super versatile as it could be used for so many things: the small bag is perfect for running errands or shopping, while the bigger bag is great for work or for a day trip.

Lightweight, sleek, and super cute - the Crossway bag will be your new favorite handmade creation! Both sizes of the bag have a magnetic snap closure - the small bag has three divided pockets, while the large bag has five divided pockets and a single pocket large enough for magazines or pattern instructions.

This is a 3-week series - in the first class you'll be cutting to prepare all your fabrics and interfacing, while the second and third classes are dedicated to the construction of the bag. This class is suitable for advanced beginner to intermediate students who have some bag making experience.
