Style Casual

What materials did you use? Some pretty summery fabric - 2 fat quarters and a bit of contrast fabric - 1 fat quarter, for lining, co ordinating zip, some fancy trim and a chain for the handle. Sew in violene (medium weight) for the lining.

What are you most proud of? The finish is good for a first go at bag making.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? forget the trim, or get something smaller and more in proportion with the bag. Also, ready make chains would be easier than making something up. I used a bit of chain from an old bag and made the rest.
