Pattern: Wasp Bag
Main Fabric: Striped cotton/elastane remnant from Tessuti Fabrics
Lining: Viscose/linen blend. Leftover fabric from my BurdaStyle book project from Tessuti Fabrics.
Notions: Metallic snap fastener and vintage buttons from the stash.
I stayed up late to sew this (ahem 2am) and discovered after i finished that i had sewn the handles on the same way instead of the petals being on opposite sides, not that it matters.
I added a key clip inside the bag (which is part of the pattern instructions.
I didn’t add the inside pocket. I want to make a bag organiser to fit inside instead.
