A few days ago I decided to do something I have never done before: Make a handbag. I sketched the bag I wanted to make which was a small shoulder bag. Then I went to the fabric store and chose a fake suede for the outside and hounds-tooth fabric for the lining. When I got home I drew a pattern cut my fabric and sewed it all together. This is how it turned out:
Having just learned to sew on a machine about six months ago I was very happy with the way this bag turned out. I think its cute and It is strong enough that I will be able to use it. It was also very fun to make and now my mom is asking me to make her one for Christmas!
