What materials did you use? Leftover fabrics from my stash: the fancy red fabric is embroidered black net over taffeta, teamed with a red/black shot fabric, the blue/white print is cotton teamed with white broderie anglaise which was part of a 'suit length' from a sari shop. These were presents for my daughter's birthday, I also made some for a friend's 50th. Both loved them!
What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have a go- it's a cute bag, and holds more than you might think. It works as both a smart and a casual version. I've made it up in taffeta, cotton, and a lightweight tweedy fabric too. All versions were gifts, and were received enthusiastically! You don't need to use any special materials [I didn't bother with the specialist fusibles advised in the instructions], I had the magnetic clasps in stash, but it would work with a button and loop too.
