I made this for a personal swap I was in and it was one of the items I made for my partner.
Im sorry I didnt take before shots ( dont know how I forgot that vital part!)
But this bag was made prom a pretty sweater- that was alomst to hard to felt because it was in such great shape. But I braved up and did it and am in love with how the bag turned out.
I bought some spiffy handles which I think suit the style of the bag perfectly, added a magnetic closure and did the detailing on the bag with red thread to have it stand out against the black and accented with a red wood button.
I also lined it with some very sweet sunglass fabric.
Hope my partner liked it. She didnt say much about it when she got the package a while back, so I was a little worried. This was also my first revamp so theres added stress.
