I wanted to warm up my crafting skills on handbag making, so I made this little guy in just a couple of hours yesterday. It was quite an easy project, though the pattern is slightly fabric-wasteful, leaving “peninsulas” of fabric because the straps and the bag itself are one piece. Nevertheless it was breezy and fun. I added a large snap because I don’t plan on using it inside-out (though it is reversible), and I also added an inner patch pocket for my cellphone. I loved top-stitching the edges (using top stitching thread) – an edge stitch foot really helps you get that nice even edge stitch. If you plan to make one for yourself, consider using a heavier sturdier outer fabric for a smarter look. More info and lessons learned on my blog
