I made my first real handbag last month, as a present for my mother-in-law. All I had to go on were her favourite colours, and it took me ages to make, but I'm so proud of it! And I learned so much for making my bags in future Smiley






I used Jordy's bag pattern as a guide, but I ended up modifying it a little in the end.

That's awesome for a first handbag! I love the fabric. It's gorgeous. I can't wait for my sewing skills to be good enough to make something like that.
