My slouch bags are wonderfully popular and I’ve made dozens of them so it was a treat to be asked to shrink it and add a zip. It meant not just changing the measurements but making sure that every other aspect of the bag remained in proportion. The inclusion of a zip also drastically changed the construction of the bag so it was a cracker of a challenge! And what you see here was the outcome. It remains a cross body bag that is fully lined but the zip gives it extra security and its smaller size means it’s perfect for trips where you don’t need to carry everything you own. In fact, one of the bags you see here was commissioned by a customer who wanted it as a companion bag to her original slouch. I made it in exactly the same fabric, as requested, and like to think of it and it’s mother-slouch living happily ever after.
