Introducing Lila bag – Allsewpetite

Lila bag

Backpacks are so versatile, especially if you have one that can be converted into a cross-body messenger bag at any time!

Lila bag is perfect for everyday errands or a day trip where you need a lot of space to carry all your essentials. Lila is an excellent bag that quickly converts from a shoulder bag to a backpack, so if you need free hands just unclip the straps from the side D-rings and attach them to the back panel instead.

Lila bag has multiple external pockets under the front flap (gusset, welt, and patch) and cargo and zipper pockets in the lining. The sewing instruction includes an option to make a functional front buckle closure or a faux buckle closure with a magnetic snap for more convenience on the go. The bag is fully lined and has adjustable buckle straps.  You can make it your own by mixing different fabrics.
