The Original Crossbody purse was the first purse Nathalie starting wearing. She made it in natural white cotton. Since she made it from 100% cotton, it was washable. It has been the most convenient conversation starter. "I LOVE your purse! Did you make that?" "Oh yes, yes I did!"

Big enough for her wallet, phone, keys, and lip gloss, and convenient crossbody style, it became her daily purse. was immediately loved and cherished for each hand-knot and tasseled fringe. The Original Crossbody purse is the most inquired about purse out of Nathalie's purse line-up. Make one in all your favorite colors! 

This pattern calls for 4 mm cord.

Bag Care: Those super dark blue skinny jeans we love so much have a dark dye that we don't love so much. It sometimes transfers a blue hue onto the crossbody bag. The bag is washable, but be gentle with her and be sure to remove that strap before washing. Air dry or dry on low. Piling is normal with natural fibers, they can be treated like a sweater and shaved off. The fringe will require the most maintenance after washing. Carefully brush it out with a fine-toothed comb, or our favorite, a clean pet brush. You may need or want to trim the fringe a bit after you brush it out. The fringe will likely be softer and more voluminous than it was before.
