I made this bag for my mother in law who had dropped some hints about how she would like to have a handmade bag for her birthday.
This bag has the shape of a tote bag, but I 'pimped' it with a pocket on the outside (closed with flap and wooden buckle) and two simple pockets and a zippered pocket on the inside. The bag closes with a recessed zipper and has two longer handles, so it can be worn over the shoulder.
I used a thick cotton for the outside and a plastic coated cotton for the inside. Because my fabrics were quite thick, I did not have to use interfacing. But when using thinner fabrics I recommend to iron on some interfacing on the main bag and lining pieces.
Take a trip down the aisle in these gorgeous gowns, or change the fabrics for a spring party dress.
