So I haven’t really made a handbag/messenger bag that I would say I was proud of and wanted to show. Here’s one! My friend’s birthday was yesterday and it seems as people get older (and since we’re in college) people just don’t bring presents. I decided to surprise her with a gift from a fellow designer. I cut and sewed this in under 1.5hrs, oh happy day! The decor is silk chiffon machine-stitch embroidered.
Blue upholstery fabric (very durable, polyester), polyester lining, silk accents.
Pattern of the Week
