I desperately wanted a classy grown up bag for school ( after all I am 25!) SO I made one!!
I got these placemats on clearance after christmas at walmart!! I though they were awesome. They are Corderoy with a satin back ( aka my lining!)]
only 70 cents each ( i Bought 4)
Then I Bought some cordinating fabric for the strap 1/2 yd cost $2.49
and I also grabbed some matching teal buttons for $0.62!!
Here are all my supplies!
So I made a handle....
then I sewed the front and the bottom to a strip of the fourth one ( i originally waws going to do side panels to but got frustrated and gave up!)
sewed up the sides and added the handle and Viola!
many thanks to my Mom who is modeling it for me!!
and close up of the button detail...
