I'm pulling an all nighter tonight so I thought I'd get some stuff posted! I made this bag as a project for work. It turned out really well, although I wouldn't really recommend faux leather as it stretches, creases, and you can't iron it. I also used vintage satin for the ties on the outside and the lining. Enjoy! C&C appreciated!




Oh and yes there is a picture of George Stombouolopopaosdla fkj;lsdkadjfg whatever his name is holding my hand in the background. Smiley

Lovely!
And I'm starting to feel like I'm the only person in the world who really enjoy sewing and using faux leather. The problems you mentioned didn't really happen to me. Well, besides the no ironing bit. But maybe we work it differently.  Grin
