I made this bag for a dear old friend’s upcoming birthday. I used VeryPurplePerson’s awesome pattern and some really pretty lightweight cotton given to me courtesy of my grandma.
Two and a half hour project time and minimum fuss. Most difficult part of sewing this for me was top stitching. I couldn’t color in the lines as a kid and I can’t make a nice even top stitch as a grown up:)
