Traverse City and the Newark Cross-body

Over the weekend my husband and I headed north to Traverse City, Michigan for a few days of wine, food, and friends. If you are a frequent visitor of Traverse City or have heard about it from others, you likely know that this city is known for its vineyards, arts, food, and beaches.  Each year, my husband's friends organize a weekend away in the winter for a day of wine tasting across Old Mission peninsula, and we end up spending a few days eating great food, drinking wine, hot tubbing at the Grand Traverse Resort, and playing games. Unfortunately, this weekend, the weather did not cooperate and we ended up attempting to drive to the peninsula but had to stop due to a blizzard. We were able to get in a few tastings on Sunday, but we spent most of the day on Saturday holed up in our rental house waiting out the storm. We're back in lower Michigan, but the below zero temps have not yet left us. I'm ready to say goodbye to the snow and cold - it's time to start counting down the weeks left of winter!

Despite the traveling, I was able to get in a bit of sewing last week, and I'm excited to share this brand-spankin' new cross-body bag, the Newark. Our cross-body bags are super popular, so I whipped up this new design last week to replenish the Jute Mills bag that sold a few weeks ago.

The Newark is a small/mid-size cross-body with a 41.5" strap featuring silver claw clips for easy removal. What's really unique about this design is the exterior 7" zipper pocket for easy access to those small items on the go - it's the first cross-body in the collection with an exterior zipper pocket.  With the interior lining fabric being a soft, pale pink and white flannel, this bag is designed to be casual and comfortable (and practical of course!).

You can find the Newark cross-body bag and all of our bags for purchase in our Etsy shop. Remember to follow us on Pinterest and Facebook for in-progress photos of new bags, styling ideas, and more!

Thanks for stopping by!
