Two Zipper Hipster Review

This pattern is called the Two Zipper Hipster, by Dog Under My Desk. I first reviewed it four years ago here after receiving my embroidery machine for Christmas 2014.

I love this design and I have to say I believe this crossover bag to be the best crossover bag pattern out there. The slip pocket and zipper front pocket is super convenient. I use it for my phone and glasses. The adjustable strap makes this bag perfect for anyone.

I personalized the front of the zipper pocket with my initials and added a Sew Spoiled design on the back. Selfish sewing is so much fun!

I realized when I got home from the fabric store that I bought the wrong color in zippers. I bought navy and the denim was not navy and not dark enough to be black. Well, with black zippers it looked navy and with navy zippers, it looked black. So I decided to go with light blue and match the embroidery to tie it all together. This also made me realize that you could do this with a variety of colors; making the embroidery and the zipper color match.

I also changed the top of the slip pocket zipper panel to accent the blue zipper color, this fabric is also the lining fabric. I couldn't be happier with the entire project!
