The Isolina Cross-Body Bag

Constructed by by BagsHandMade4U

This week we are featuring an Isolina cross-body bag made by BagsHandMade4U. The name "Isolina" means "She who is gazed upon".

A one-of-a-kind handbag that effortlessly transitions between a shoulder bag and a cross-body bag. This stunning piece showcases an exquisite custom print featuring an abstract floral pattern in vibrant shades of turquoise, magenta, and black, all beautifully displayed on high-quality faux leather. The interior is fully lined.

The bag showcases a clever design element—a faux flap that actually serves as a nice, spacious front exterior pocket. The faux flaps front and back also hide a total of three pockets, one a hidden cell phone pocket. Inside the zippered top are even more pockets, one zippered and three slip pockets. Also inside is a matching detachable key fob. The main compartment is securely enclosed with a sturdy zipper.

Inside the bag, you'll discover a combination of functionality and organization. One side features a zippered pocket and a slip pocket, while the other side offers a separated, three-part slip pocket. The bag can be carried effortlessly using the easy handles or the adjustable cross-body strap, providing versatility and comfort.

This beauty features high quality gunmetal hardware. The cross-body/shoulder strap is adjustable and removable. BagsHandMade4U made this gorgeous bag with help from Cheryl Tomono, Escondido, CA. The pattern to make this bag is by Oro Rosa.

Finished Size: 11.5" wide by 11” high by 3” deep (29cm wide by 28cm high by 7.5cm deep).
