Tremont Crossbody Bag – with video tutorial

(53 customer reviews)



A great everyday bag, the Tremont organizes all your necessities. With the double zipper opened fully, you can easily locate your belongings in the gusseted main compartment.  Four card slots and one slip pocket built into the lining hold your credit cards and cash, while zippered pockets on the front exterior and in the lining help organize small items. A back exterior slip pocket secures with a magnetic snap and keeps your phone and essentials accessible.   The adjustable crossbody strap clips to two swivel hooks.

    Love, love this crossbody bag! It’s light weight but sturdy, and the side gussets allow you to locate your “stuff” without rifling through your bag. Do keep as much interfacing out of the seam allowances as possible; top stitching through all of the layers is tough, but doable. I will be making several.
