Added Jan 11, 2012
This bag was completed December 24, 2011. The fabric is black leather recycled from a damaged coat that I purchased at the thrift store, and a lovely imitation red crocodile vinyl that I purchased from Hancock Fabrics. The border is embroidered using "Amazing Embroidery Designs ‘Classical Monogram Font’”. The handbag pattern I used is “Butterrick pattern B5658”. The inside of the bag/purse includes a slot for a water bottle; credit card holders; a zippered pouch for a wallet and checkbook; slots for pens and pocket for a cell phone; big enough to be able to carry an iPAD The outside has deep pockets for keys and glasses. I used “Annie’s Soft and Stable” stabilizer for the interfacing which gives the bag that firm but pliable look and feel. There are 1/4" grommets in the handles, and magnets are used inside the leather closure. The feet underneath provide the complete finished look. You may see more of my bags on FACEBOOK on YRC Ladybug Inspirations.
