The template for this bag was first of all roughly sketched on scrap paper and then cut out. It’s all hand stitched as Im yet to learn how to use a sewing machine! This is really my first attempt at creating anything that I would want to use/wear but Im quite pleased with the result.
Black linen material, beads for the handle which is actually a necklace I got free with a magazine, flat glass bead as an accessory for the front of the bag and a button stitched on over it to hold the bead in place.
