I wanted to share with you a couple of variations of the bag I posted about last Friday. This is a picture of my friend, Lynda. She's super fun and crafty. She is also the mother of only boys, so that means I will love her forever. She made her bag out of a camel corduroy for the outside and a fun print for the lining. She made a larger version of the bag, with the bottom measuring about 20 inches. It is very roomy.
Charlie is modeling the very first bag I made. I followed the directions at Tiny Happy exactly, and ended up with a bag that measures about 15 inches across the bottom. I made this bag out of some leftover grey duck cloth for the outside and a tablecloth I got at a garage sale 10 years ago for the inside. I covered a giant button with the inside fabric, which makes it look super cool, I think.
I love sewing purses. It is an easy project that you get carry around with you all the time and also express your individual personality.
See ya on Monday for a tutorial and a giveaway!
