Rubie Cross-Body Runaround Bag by Moments

Rubie front
I recently tested the Rubie Cross-Body Runaround Bag designed by Moments.  This elegant and stylish bag with unique diagonal pleats finishes to about 12" high (15" high with the cuff turned up)  x 12" wide x 3" deep. Although the pattern is designed for faux leather there are tips if you prefer to use cottons or home decorator fabrics. This is an intermediate pattern with excellent directions and photos for each step. You can get the pattern here.

The pattern includes three options for the back....pleated like the front without a pocket, a set in zipper pocket (like I chose to do), or a full back slip pocket. It allows you to personalize it to your own particular needs and tastes.

Interior
 The photos above and below show the interior that features a zipper pocket, a double slip pocket and a key fob.

As you can see, I chose a lovely turquoise cotton lining.

If you are shopping and need more room, you can simply turn up the cuff and stuff a bit more inside. The photo above also shows the clever hidden slip pocket that is a perfect size for a cell phone or other treasures.

I absolutely love this bag (that immediately was claimed by my daughter) and plan to make several more.

Until next time, may you sew with joy, stay healthy and be filled with God's awesome blessings!                                                                                                                                          Judith
