I’ve been longed for this kind of bags.
I was happy when I found an article of how to make the bag
on a magazine(cotton friend・autumn 2010)

The magazine one doesn’t have inside fabric.
I added inside fabric to be made to last and up completion.

Swage work was the hardest part.
But I felt doing craft at school :D

I’m satisfied with the results.

    The bag you made looks really very nice and stable! And I do now know how difficult it is to make bags! :)
