I used the last of my Alexander Henry "Regent Skulls" to make this wristlet and a matching tote (not pictured). I used fusible fleece to interface... The strap hardware is temporary until my current shipment of hooks comes in, but you get the idea. The idea for this wristlet is to coordinate with a tote and to be easily hooked around the strap of the tote to carry essentials (i.e. lip gloss, keys, phone... notice lip gloss is more essential than the later two, haha.)
Anyways. It has a nice plush feel to it and i'm very pleased with it. I hate to see this fabric go :-( I love it so.
Enjoy, C&C welcome... and I'm working on tutes for my previous posts ;-)
This is the first bag that I have made using hardware on the handles and I'm hooked, no pun intended.
The fabirc is Daisy Chain from Amy Butler. The lobster hooks were upcycled from an old (last season ROSS find) handbag. This bag has a magnetic snap closure, interior zippered pocket and removable bag base (which can be washed). This bag is interlined with medium weight fusible as well as med-heavy sew-in. It holds it's shape beautifully... I'm crazy about the colors. :-)
This is an unlined linen tote with Gerbera Daisy Cotton top, which is interfaced with sew-in interlining as well as fusible interfacing to make it hold shape. The top band is double-sided and includes a magnetic snap closure. Also, the gingham handles are padded.
I made this bag in a few hours and left it unlined to allow for it to be easily folded and carried in your everyday handbag to use as a reusable tote.
My favorite part of this bag is the pleating, the more you put into the bag, the more they flare, giving the bag a dress-like shape.
