What materials did you use? 100% malabrigo wool, genuine leather handles, fabric for lining, feet for bottom and coro plast for reinforced bag bottom. Little felted sheep for decoration.

Wow, that bag looks so professionally done! I have never used leather handles, so I was wondering: (1) do you use your sewing machine to attach them or hand stitch? (2) do you put reinforcement underneath where the handles are attached? Anyway, GREAT job!

Thank you Christine! The handles are hand stitched on and yes they are reinforced in behind. I glue on a solid strip of leather which my handy husband has predrilled the matching handle holes with. Then I stitch through both layers. Very solid and will not distort the shape with use:) Bag bottom is also reinforced.

Thanks for all the info. May I borrow your handy husband? :-)
