Winter Traverse Bag

I sewed a new Traverse Bag (Noodlehead Patterns) for this winter season ! I’ve already sewn a couple of Traverse bags, but this time I wanted one with a leather front pocket flap.

The materials I used are:

  • geometric upholstery main fabric
  • Black leather for front pocket flap
  • Black canvas for accent fabric
  • magnetic snap closure
  • usual sewing materials

I assembled the bag according to the instructions, but made a couple of changes. For the leather front pocket flap, I skipped the piping and just top stitched around the edges. I also exchanged the snap for the front pocket with a magnetic closure, which would not be visible on the flap.

I used a black canvas fabric for all the accent details, such as the strap and strap holders.

I’m very happy how it turned out. It’s got a messenger bag vibe, but more sophisticated 😊 So it can go from the bike ride to and from work, to a day or evening on the town.
