This is the 2nd time I used this pattern...from memory, and I think I did quite well. I now know the measurements I need and think I will be sticking with this design for a little bit, so look for more colors to come!
This was the first time I used the clasp for this handbag and well I have to say I am very impressed! I love this new twist -- literally! Anyways, this handbag was created out of my scraps yep you read correctly...scraps. I love the way this came out! I just have to remember the measurements to recreate this little beauty.
What a cute little bag. I was able to line it was a thick canvas and added 3 pockets for the interior. As you can see there is a snap for the closure, and a nice thick flap. I was able to gather the bottom the the bag for extra pizazz. On the sides of the bag I added ties to add character. When I made this bag I just...well made it, so I will need to make a pattern for the next time I decide to make it...which I know I want to already! This little creation only took me about 3-4 hours to complete...minus the snack, cup of tea and attending to my son who was calling me
This was my first attempt with a new pattern. And while it turned out pretty cool, there are some things I plan on changing when I make some more. But this one was pretty cool. There are 6 credit card holders, and one large pocket for bills, and the lower section is large enough for a check book. The whole thing is secured by Velcro...which is what I will be changing next time...to a snap. Other then that, I loved the colors, and it is a great project to use up my extra fabric! More to come....
Something about me...Mother of a 3 year old who is on a daily basis cracking me up. Half the stuff he says I am trying so hard to keep a straight face, and he loves to be naked...anywhere.
Enough about my funny son, something about me. I started to sew when I was little, my dear old mother taught me, and I just took to it like a duck in water.
Though sewing is a great stress reliever, I recently started writing a couple of Novels.
I have two YA novels which are...dare I say...about vampires. (BUT COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THEN THE EVER POPULAR TWILIGHT SERIES)
Also to add to the list I have completed 2 Romance/Chic-Lit novels.
I am trying to get them published, but as I found out...not so easy. (Fingers crossed!)
