What was your inspiration? I have been making several handbags for friends and family and my dear daughter came to me with a request to make her a bag. She needed one with lots of pockets for her Avon books and samples. So I went to work designing one to her request. she needed it a certain width and length as being an Avon demonstrator you have a lot to carry around. I finished it off with a pocket on the outside embroidered with her initials.
