Nice bag for everyday use. I have so much of the skull fabric I think I shall be making bags for every occasion out of it! Next up will be a matching wallet. I decided not to use contrasting fabric for the handles and band and just edged the band with ribbon instead. I really like the way it turned out, but it meant there was a whole lot of layers to sew through when I was sewing the edges so I probably wouldn’t do that again. I will be making this pattern again, it was really quick and now I know what I’m doing, really simple.
Black skully material, polka dot lining fabric. white ribbon.

My sewing machine for sewing all those layers without (much) complaint!
