This is the modified Bathina bag I made my niece for her birthday. I added a bottom panel to allow her more room inside the bag and put an “E” on the front as a monogram. I also added a zipper to the inside to keep things from falling out of it when it’s swung around by a 6 year old.
It looks rather space age between the silver vinyl and the silver lame lining, but I had them laying around from making her brother a stuffed guitar so I decided to use them. It took about 3 hours to sew by hand.
