This is my second bag (that will be a secret santa gift) I still haven't perfected putting a strap on or doing the lining great, but I really like it.







Comments would be great!!
Enjoy!!

Love polka dots, and love that bag!!! I am going to a girly get together on 29 th December. We are all taking something good to eat or drink, and we are having a Secret Santa too. I will have to try to make something over Christmas if I have time. I would certainly love to pick your bag out!!! Grin

Happy Christmas, and Happy Crafting!  Wink

That is so cute! The closure is my favorite part, it reminds me of a tie. I haven't made an entire bag from scratch yet, so - at 2 bags - you're already way ahead of me! Did you use a pattern or just make it up as you went along?

I kinda had it planned out as I went along. The border around the top wasn't planned, but the bag looked kinda plain jane without it so I sewed that on and sewed the closure on as I was doing that. I didn't use a pattern.  I get ideas from the internet then draw up what I want the bag to look like and think of what all would need to be done to get it to look like that. Sometimes I change as I go, sometimes not.
