This was one of the items I crafted for seeuudee in the Make-a-Friend swap. I had the basic idea to do a small bag for my fellow bag-obsessed partner and tried to include elements from a few of her likes. The result is a little bit steampunk, a little bit Newt Scamander/Hufflepuff, but hopefully still versatile enough to not stand out too much! I think my favorite thing besides the monogram (loosely based on Newt's with her initials overlapping) is the belt loops on the back  - which I've been seeing on more bags lately and thought was fun and steampunk utility-belt friendly. Wink All of the fabric and thread was in my stash; the only things I had to buy were some of the findings and leather needles for my machine.



using the belt loops!



And thank you PerfectlyBohemian for some almost-finished progress photos that actually show all the angles Wink:










Thanks for looking!

That is so cool, great use of all the inspiration. It's a small but adorable bag which I'm sure will be used well. And belt loops? Never seen them on the bags I have, but then again the few bags I own are huge XD

I've never seen belt loops on a purse before either, and, at my new job, I handle a LOT of purses and bags.  So cool and versatile!  Very professional-looking with a bit of fantasy flair!

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO
