White Lake, Mich...
I designed this bag for some folded stars I made a while ago, but I love my stars so much I couldn’t risk using one of them for the first “real” bag(I made about 3 or 4 practice bags to get the shape right). So I thought this daisy lace would be a good substitute.
The bag is navy canvas with lots of leather details. It was my first time doing fringe, it turned out nice, but I think I’ll do shorter fringe next time. The bag has one big, main compartment with a small zipper pocket inside, and there is a pocket underneath the flap.
I’m happy with it but I think next time I’ll make it a little smaller and more round, I dont like how drastically the circle shape stops.
I usually carry my new bag designs as a sort of test drive, but this bag is so much not my personal style that I really dont want to. I’m hoping to find it a good home.
