When i have seen the lovely handbag in houdstooth from Mariqlo from japan "Mariqlo"http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/handbag-in-houdstooth-check i knew instantly, that i wanted to try something similar as well.

So i have tried my own interpreatation of this bag using soft cottonvelvet as lining and really havey fabric (from an upholsteryfabric store) and these two “babies” are my first result

25-09-2010: i have been asked to do a bigger version of this bag and added a few more pics from this bag. it is made in upholstery material (outside) and a very fine silverish prokat inside

    I really love the first one (different shades of blue). The velvet a very luxury touch. Also, the handles are big enough to not hurt your hands if there is something heavy in the bag… And that label! It is such a plus!

      dear laurwyn! thank you very much. i tried to create a handbag, that i would like to carry round as well. lovely soft touch, if you take the velvetside of the handles and yes, they are big enough not to hurt you after “heavy-shoping”

    Hey Ralf, these bags look really interesting, especially using something precious like velvet as a lining. I like the color mix of the second one. I find it also very interesting that one can find time to do things not for oneself or his partner. ;-) My ‘order book’ is full with stuff for me and my wife, but eventually I will also find time for things like these.
