Design Your Own Handbag »
InstructionsI combined ideas from a couple of the bags on the course and changed the measurements to make it bigger. I also added long sashes that can be knotted for handles.
I haven't even watched all the lessons yet I feel so skilled up to make lots of bags. I have absolutely lost all fear of zips - thanks Brett!
