new handbag...

amy butler handbag fully lined handbag handbag Misc. Creations! sewing sewn hand bag

I bought a pattern over the weekend. But I couldn't find any fabrics that called out to me so I just ended up doing a test run in Amy Butler fabrics I had on hand.

After seeing it finished I knew exactly what I wanted my handbag to look like. So late yesterday I cut all the pieces and laid them out to be sewn this morning and made notes of some pattern tweaking; I wanted to make the handle wider and add more stitching detail as well add some woven interfacing to strengthen it. I also was not going to use Pellon Craft Fuse again, made the purse kind of stiff in my opinion. So I picked up 3 yards of a woven fusible interfacing, more expensive, but totally worth it!

it might have to be a double post day. I've finished my new handbag....and LOVE the fabric combo and I'm thrilled with the beefier handle. But for now I must sign off......Gotta walk up to jacker's preschool we have a park date just Arlin and Mama (and of course snacks!)

    Cool!! I can’t wait to see your new version. This one is pretty cool too.

    Thank you for my fabric flowers too! I love them and wore the brooch to Art Unraveled today. Everyone loved it and I made sure to tell them where to get there own :)

    I love the bag!!! I especially appreciate the pockets – the one on the outside for phone, etc., the inside ones for lip gloss…. I want you to make one for me! Would you add another outside pocket or two for keys and glasses? Need to separate them so they don’t scratch one another…

    Hugs,

    Mom
