i've been away at school, and haven't really been able to sew very much. so, naturally, when my spring break began yesterday, the first thing i did was whip up a new bag!

the main fabric is a brown and black houndstooth suiting fabric, and the stripes and lining are cotton. i used the heaviest fusible interfacing i could find, because i like my bags to be sturdy. i cheated a little, i guess, because i bought canvas pre-made straps (that came with hardware and everything!) and packaged piping from joann's, but it's really fine.  Wink

but anywho, on to the pictures!

I'm not doing personal swaps right now, but if you're interested, go ahead and PM me anyway--maybe we can work it out for later. Smiley

whoa, fastest reply ever!

i forgot to take a picture of the lining, but you can see what it's like in the close-up of where the straps are attached to the bag. it's the pink, green, brown, and cream stripey goodness! and thanks!

That is a nice looking bag.  You did a great job and it looks dainty yet durable. The colors, fabrics, and patterns really blend well together.  You have a great eye!

I'm interested in personal swaps -- I love bracelets & necklaces and I don't know how to make them.

the piping is definitely a fine detail!!  I like the mix of fabrics--and don't worry about using pre-made stuff , like the handles--we all need fast ways to do things or shortcuts!!

What's not to like? ha ha
