pink leather handbag..

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I think it probably is that I acrually made a bag I can be proud of and then of course it is the interior zipper. . :-) What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take the craftsy course and just give it a go and enjoy every minute of it. I promise you - it is a great feeling to be able to tell people who ask you where you've bought that bag - I've made it!! The only thing I may not do for my first handbag project is to choose leather as the main material.. It's difficult to work with.. Make at least one bag in another materila first...

What you will need

  • Leather for the exterior and linen for the interior

Q&A with elisabeth975

Christine F. asked:
Absolutely beautiful! I also had so much fun taking this class. Where did you find the screw-in grommets for the big bag?
elisabeth975 answered:
thanks for your encouragement. I found a lot of diffrent hardware for my handbag making through a website from Hongkong. Its called www.buckelkingdom.com. This is a site where you can order testpackaging of different hardware. The same company has another site where you can buy in bulk.. But since you get somewhere between 4-10 pc of eveything I wanted I thougt it was enough to order from them. It is a great site with very fast delivery and good pricing.. These grommets is actually not screw in - it is a kind where you put them together and then use the "clips"(attached to one of the grommets parts)and then close them. I'm not very good at explaining how they work but if you try I promise it is even easier than you think. Good luck! Have you finished a bag yet?
