I made a bag for my best friend for Christmas combining some of her favorite things.
1. Strawberry shortcake- she loves her & since I had some vintage sheets lying around, I decided to use it to line the bag as well as the detail on the pocket.
2. Apricot & Hopsalot (Strawberry Shortcake character)- We volunteer at an animal shelter & spend a lot of time with the homeless bunnies so Hopsalot made me think of that.
3. Orange & cordoroy. Just some other of her favorites I incorporated with this fabric I found at the thrift store (one of our favorite places).
And on to the pictures. I'm rather new at sewing and I used my purse as a model of what I wanted to make.
This is the front of the bag:
