The overnight bag I was using as my handbag (a neccesity I assure you) died a horrible, painful death through over use, so I decided to make my own, it was great for a while, however my inept sewing skills was the death of it. Practice makes perfect though! Eventually I will make a bag which will last despite my sewing skills!
I used the cheapest silk/satin I could find for the lining and a cotton for the outer, next time I think a much stronger material would be better, I feel more of a canvas type material would be best for hand/pvernight bags however part of sewing is being creative and experimenting with different fabrics! :)
