Hi

Inspired by this post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=228942.0 and this tutorial http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=76760.0, I decided to make one as a birthday present for a friend. The tutorial made this look fairly simple - it wasn't, probably not helped by the choice of fabric that frayed the minute you touched it!

This took three attempts and some assistance from my darling hubby, who stayed very patient with me through the whole process!


Sorry for the messy photo - did not have time to take photos before I gave it to her, so this was taken at the restaurant!

The outer fabric is so gorgeous and it is lined with a turquoise heavy satin. The flaps would not stay glued, so we used decorative brass studs, added before the lining. The handles are fed through an eyelet and fixed with a bead on the inside.

Overall, I am pleased with the result, but think it may be a while before I attempt a second one!
