White Lake, Mich...
I made this bag for myself and I’m so happy with how it turned out. I wanted to try this fold over detail ever since I saw it, about a year ago. I was a little nervous that the welt holes at the top would be difficult so I hand basted like crazy all over them and the top seam. They turned out awesome, I was surprised at how well they line up together. The bag has suede details around the zipper pocket and the strap attachments. I used a magnetic snap for the main body closure. My favorite thing about the bag is all the different ways it can be carried, over the shoulder, with the handles, or under the arm, folded or not folded. I’m excited to make more for my Esty shop.
