First Handbag Ever

Project Description

What are you most proud of? This is my first real sewing project (besides burp cloths and blankets). What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't use fabric that frays easily or that's too thick. That was my mistake.

What you will need

  • Outer is a home decor fabric
  • inner a paisley cotton print.

So not only your first handbag but also your first adventure into more complicated sewing. WELL DONE! I hope I will make as good an effort when I get time to work on the course and I,ve made bags of every description before. Super Job.
