New Cross Body Zipper Bag

Today I'm sharing an in-progress photo of the latest bag to join the Grounds tribe, a cross body zipper pouch bag. This bag is a new design for the collection. It's secured with a zipper, which is a first for one of our totes, and it includes one exterior slide pocket and one interior slide pocket. The inner fabric is a heavy weight ivory denim, whereas the outer burlap is a red, black, and tan color scheme.

I'm working on finishing the bag with a long strap, and I haven't decided yet if it will be leather, suede, or burlap lined with the denim fabric that lines the interior. It will have two clasps attaching to the side loops to secure the strap, which makes it easier to remove the strap if you'd rather carry the bag or place it into a larger bag for travel or other temporary storage.

I'll be sharing more photos in the next week as this bag is finished up. I'm already planning the next one, and I think it will also contain a zipper closure. These can be tricky, so it takes a lot of pre-planning to ensure all of the pieces of the bags are assembled in the correct order. If you have any tricks for inserting zippers as the top closure for a tote bag, please do share!
