1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / handbag with silky stripes! on: March 07, 2008 12:30:06 PM
hellllllooooo!! im new to craftster... and this is my first post ever!!

Sooo i just started sewing in september (which is why the fabric looks so fallish...) and i made this and its one of my first projects i ever did. and i designed it and made the pattern myself! and im pretty happy with how it turned out. the brown fabric is actually cordaroy and the floral fabric is some silky material. not really sure what it is because i got it really cheap in a remnant bin. so it has a circle base and then folds in, so it holds A LOT and then it has 2 handles. for some more pizazz i added a bow in the same silky floral and an orange lining. and its really cool because the last stripe on the right continues on to the back. (sorry i dont have a pic) hope you like it! click the link below to see a good pic of it!

hah. this is after i used it SOOO much. the silky material started fraying. i just used all purpose thread. is there a better thread you can use so this doesn't happen?Huh but you can see that the bag is pretty big so it can hold a lot. Grin sorry my room is so messy! click this link to see it!
