Instead of making handbags for a craft fair next weekend, I decided that I needed to finally
play with my kits. First up- DIY Lunchbag! I modified the directions a bit, because I wanted to line it with some fused plastic bags. And then I attempted to add a gusset at the bottom. But, because I added the lining, I didn't think it would work well with a drawstring, so I made some braided handles out of some cotton cording I had lying around, and added a velcro closure. I think it came out good enough to give as a gift to my sister-in-law for her birthday next month!
And, since I still don't feel like sewing any handbags, I think I'll go and make some soap!
