My colleagues gave me the BurdaStyle Sewing Handbook for birthday. I like all of the patterns. Because I was looking for a birthday present for a friend I started with the bag. I still had some IKEA fabric and some turquoise cotton in my stash. I added a small zipper pocket on the inside. Another thing I changed was the strap. I only did one loop to install a d-ring to hold the adjustable strap. I hope she will like it. But I’m pretty sure because turquoise is her favorite colour.
