I wanted to make my own handbag and bought a Japanese book! when we were in Japan last time. Since the instruction was with pictures it was not hard to understand how to manage.. I put some red silk band as decoration on the one side, and on the other side with outside pocket I have used magnetic snap.
Inside the handbag I made a little pocket for my phone and two bigger pockets on the one side, and a pocket with zipper for the lipstick etc. on the other side. I have used thick batting posts, but it was not stiff enough so I had to use heavy paper as well for the sides and in the bottom. I do love my new handbag :-)
Printed cotton blends and cotton inside.
