Blue Star Carolina

The Carolina Bag – the Ultimate Overnight Bag, Large Work Bag or Baby Bag


This is my largest Cross Body Bag, and she’s called the Carolina Bag. It is 46cm/18″ wide seam to seam at the top of the bag, 31cm/12″ tall and 15cm/6″ deep. She’s the latest addition to my range, and I’m really excited by the design.

The base is boxed to give a strong, rectangular base. The bag is lined with recycled jeans, and because of its size it has two patch pockets, one each side, and the usual key clip.

The Carolina Bag looks fabulous worn on the shoulder or as a cross body bag. When it is on your shoulder or across your body, it becomes slightly slouchy, which is REALLY cool. The Carolina bag can happily accommodate a 13″ laptop, notebooks, novel, guidebooks, e-readers or whatever else you need on your way. They are also perfect as baby bags, with plenty of room for nappies/diapers, wipes and a spare set of baby clothes. There are two patch pockets, opposite each other on the inside to keep your bits and pieces in order. The bags close with a strong zip for security.

The outer fabrics I use are all showerproof and wipe clean. Every bag is different because of the way the fabric cuts, so you are assured of a unique bag, a one-off. You can see the differences in the pictures of the bags. The lining of each bag is recycled denim jeans, another reason why each bag is unique – I only manage to get one of these bags from each pair of jeans!

The fabric is showerproof and easy to keep clean – just wipe with a damp cloth. The shoulder strap is made from strong, long lasting navy polyester webbing, and is fully adjustable – it can be shortened to sit on the shoulder, or lengthened to fit across the body. It will easily reach to the hip if worn cross-body. I can make the strap longer if you need it – just ask me.
