I think I’ve developed a love/hate relationship with this pattern! I’ve made this to match some fab shoes I’ll be wearing next month at my brother’s wedding. I have yet to add the ribbon to the edge of the handle to hide the pinking – but I was so desperate to get to other things that I decided I was largely finished and could do that some other time! This is actually the 3rd Bathina I’ve made – improving each time, but not necessarily all the improvements in the final article, unfortunately! I’m reasonably happy with the outcome as I added inner pockets (in a different lining as I ran out of the original curtain lining!) and most of the work is quite neat. The handle STILL gives me bother and the whole thing turned out a little unintentionally assymmetrical!
One lined curtain bought for 2 quid from a remnant box.
Some extra navy lining for inner pockets.
