You CAN Take It With You - ALL OF IT

Project Description

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The concept is good but if you have this magazine, scale it down and use Brett's techniques for a better final product.

What you will need

  • The exterior is an upholstery fabric and contrasting twill. The interior is linen in two colours. I used a pattern from the new Threads Handbags magazine and I knew at the get-go that it would be large but in fact it is huge. When it is unfolded
  • I can hardly reach the bottom of the bag. Granted I am only 4'10" but still
  • this is really big. I decided to make up this one to the pattern and found the instructions quite poor. I should have just used the techniques from the class. I did use the strap techniques I learned from Brett. Inserted hard bottom and feet. I used a giant zipper which suits the bag. I left the top handles off but should have added them as the front is quite plain and the handles would have improved that.

Q&A with cucperson

Very nice! Love the fabric!
cucperson answered:
Why thank you! I happy that is is pretty but is sure is BIG. I want to try a curved top one with a zipper.
