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!

So much work went into this, and it was well-worth it! Just wonderful.

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!

Wonderful! So many lovely details, a lot of thought obviously went into this.
