My Brocade Bag.

Added Dec 13, 2011

Somewhere In Sun...






I Made this bag to complement my outfit which was made from the same fabric. I love brocade…beautiful. I will try and get the photo of the top soon. Regards to this bag I used the plastic wooden looking handles being a novice at the time and then sealed the bag openings shut. Today I got some nice black jersey knit and wrapped it tightly around the handles and that did the trick. I added a pocket into the bag. It has black lining inside and it was interfaced inside underneath the lining.
I did use a pattern being a novice in making bags..I think it was a Mccalls I will update when I find out which one. I hope the pics do this bag justice :O)

I enjoyed making the bag I choose this pattern because as a beginner in making bags it looks easy. Since making this bag I have already made another two.

I will add details to my blog.

Thanks for looking.

    I had a bag exactly this shape and style , it was a chinese style brocade in a peachy pink , sadly i had to cut it up due to wear and tear . I took it everywhere ! Nice to see your bag is alive and kicking x

      Lol.. I made a top with this fabric and made a bag with the rest. It is a nice bag. I don’t use it much at present though.
