It's All About The ... COMMA!

I made a similar Molly Market Tote Bag last year - see it here - but I wound up giving it as a Christmas present to Meg, our nephew's wife who lives in London.   I didn't give it to her until I was sure I had enough of Comma by ZenChic to make another.  This bag really is perfect for daily shopping - lightweight, sturdy, stylish.

This second bag is the Hazel Hipster, designed to be a cross-body bag.   I can't tell you how much I struggle with the length of bag straps.  And what did I do?  Create a lovely bag with a strap that is too short to wear cross body.  (Yes, I measured - who knows what the issue is...).   So either I need to find a short person who loves this bag - anyone? - or rework the straps with d-rings and make it adjustable.  Good thing I have more comma fabric.  In fact - full disclosure:  I have bought this fabric three times now.

Interior has two pockets

Back is plain and quilted
