Emerson Crossbody Bag
This modern, original crossbody bag pattern is perfect for an intermediate quilter. The Emerson bag is the perfect blend of utility and style.

Keep your belongings secure with zippered closures for the main compartment, as well as a convenient front pocket (great for your phone or passport)! Perfect for travel or adventure, but also day-to-day running around.
