This is my first handbag! I used a See and Sew pattern and extended the length of the bag’s pattern to fit my laptop for school. I am a student at the University of Florida (Go Gators!) and wanted to personalize the bag with our school colors: orange and blue. I added the orange ric rac trim to the blue contrast fabric to give the bag some UF flair. The bag fits my laptop perfectly and actually looks better when the laptop is in it!

Oma and my aunt Sylvi for helping me with my first bag and for not giving up after our mistakes!
Sip cocktails by the fire in faux fur, patterned silks, and more luxurious fabrics.
