I LOVE THIS NAIROBI BAG PATTERN FROM HOTPATTERNS!
I'm a do-it-yourselfer, I thought purse patterns were for winps. This pattern has made a convert out of me- the way the handle is done is pure genius, and the shape is better than anything I've come up with on my own. Thanks hotpaptterns!
It took a while to make sure I had the cord pattern going in the right direction. The lining fabric was from my grandma's stash- thanks memere!
One question about this pattern- I did understitch the inside seam allowances to the lining around the top, but the seam allowances are still flipping up. Anything I can try before I resort to topstitching?
And a little grey bag made last summer;
Comments appreciated- I just started sewing last summer....
