What materials did you use? I used Faux leather and upholstery fabric, it was a new thing to try out.

Oooh, your bag is lovely! I just uploaded a bag that I made using the same types of fabrics. I managed to sew the faux leather with my regular machine presser foot, but do you have any other tips that you can share with us to make sewing with fake leather easier? Thanks bunches!!!

Thank you so much for your lovely comment. I use a walking foot when I work with faux leather, vinyl or similar type of fabrics, sometimes I use a Teflon foot but I like the results better with the walking foot, also I set the stitch length to 3.5 or 4. Hope this helps.

Yes, this is very helpful information thanks. Time to buy a walking foot!

I like this hand bag, but can you tell me where do you get the hardware? For example, the butterfly turn lock? Thank you so much

Hi, thank you for your comment. I buy all of my supplies through the internet, this is one of the sites that carries a lot of hardware for bags: or Ebay, Most of the bags feet and Rings I puchase on EBAY. Hope this helps.

I love the cloth and leather look. It softens the feel of the bag and adds color.
