I've found that I really enjoy making all kinds of bags, as well as handsewing-for some odd reason?? Anyhow, this is my latest bag creation and I'm really proud of it!
The first photo is of the finished product. The way I had it planned originally, it was WAY too big, so I made some modifications, and I'm really pleased with plan B.
The second photo is of the beading I put on both the bottom of the flap in the front, and also on the top of the bag on the inside. I've been beading everything lately as well.
The third photo is of the label I sewed inside of it. hggdm sent me a set of my own labels she made, along with the supplies to make my own, and told me how she did it. I went crazy and now have a large baggie full of different kinds of labels!
The fourth photo is of the strap for the bag which I love as well. It's two long chains of the purple and multicolored yarn, and then two long chains of this really colorful novelty yarn I've had sitting around forever that matched the pocketbook exactly. I braided them together. Now the strap won't stretch and is really strong.
The fifth photo is of the little ends from the braided handle that I left on each side of the bag. I wanted to bead some of them, but can't find the big beads that I had.
What do you think?
