Calling all bag enthusiasts! Immerse yourself in a two-day creative journey as we bring your new 'Kathryn Bag' to life. As a bag designer, I'm thrilled to share the secrets of this versatile creation, featuring sophisticated Faux Leather or Cork accents. Unleash your creativity as we explore the unique 2-way strap system, allowing you to effortlessly switch between a chic over-the-shoulder style and a trendy full-length crossbody look.  Dive into the art of bag-making with an ingenious lining equipped with a robust magnetic closure, two secure inner zip pockets, and an outer zip pocket for added convenience.  Join me for an immersive experience, where we'll craft the Kathryn Bag together. Don't miss the chance to create a bag that not only speaks volumes about your style but also becomes a true reflection of your craftsmanship!  Intermediate level.
