Description

I sewed this bag in 2015, when I was in my sewing course, althoug it was a project I was making at home, my teacher supervised it.
I used a pattern from Dorothy Wood’s “BAGS, BAGS,BAGS” book, I made some alterations like printing the pattern in a bigger scale so the bag could have extra space and I omitted the button.
It was challenging for me, specially because it was really hard to stitch around the bamboo handles.
I really like it, it’s lined in the inside, so I used a contrasting color and it also has an inside pocket for my phone. Then I hand stitched a fabric flower, like many pin up bags I’ve seen on the internet.
