Design Your Own Handbag »
InstructionsI didn't use a pattern for this project, just the very clear instructions from Brett.
Type of item: Accessory
Style: Casual, Classic
recycled linen wall fabric, cotton fabric, purse hardware (magnetic snap, d-rings, rivets), zippers
What was your inspiration?
I've had this fabric since the 1980's - it came off some walls in a demo. Since it has a trace of glue on one side, it wasn't useful for many things. It occurred to me it was the perfect thing to use for a test bag to learn the techniques in Brett's class.
What are you most proud of?
I learned a lot making this first bag - not TOO many mistakes. It gave me confidence to try more things.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
