Lombard Street Bag

I was one of the bags testers for Christine of Chris W. Designs. This was my first time testing a bag for Christine too. This bag goes across your body with an adjustable strap and has a zippered pocket to hold an iPad or similar device, which is padded with By-Annie's Soft and Stable (or headliner foam which is what I used). Plus there loads of outside and inside pockets to hold other goodies too. I made mine in 2 batik fabrics. Please check out the other bag testers and see how different their bags look because we all chose different fabrics of course, especially that super beautiful fabric that Liz chose. Wow that is a great fabric!

Christine had a bag naming contest too and the chosen name was Lombard Street, which is a street in San Francisco that is a very steep zigzagging road. Perfect name choice for this bag because of the slanted zigzag-looking pockets on the front. I wanted my zigzag pockets to stand out more so I alternated my fabrics so you could really see the pockets better. I have a lot of photos of this bag because well I am pretty darn proud of myself for making it! Lol! I learned a few new things too. Thank you Christine for letting me test your bag. If you'd like to make this bag or one of Christine's other beautiful bags designs, please check out her website at Chris W. Designs.

My daughter's iPad I borrowed for the photo shoot, lol.
iPad fits nicely inside the pocket, which has the padded headliner foam (or By-Annie's Soft and Stable) to keep it cushioned.
Top of the bag has a recessed zipper.
I added a beaded zipper pull that I made to each of the 3 zippers (iPad pocket, hidden zipper pocket, and recessed zipper) 
Can you see the hidden zippered pocket?
As seen from the back view.
