I’ve been using the same handbag for many months now. In October I made a new one from a book pattern as part of The Monthly Stitch challenge. One problem, the bag is more appropriate for spring and summer than winter months. What to do?
The material I used I had picked up from the remnant bin with the idea of making a handbag.
Here’s a close up of the material.
The original pattern called for one small inside pocket. Instead I added one foe ky reading glasses and a larger one on the opposite side for small things.
I didn’t have matching thread so I went with a lighter tan that shows off the top stitching.
I am pleased with my new handbag and even happier knowing I saved $$$ by making it myself.
