I finally managed to make a bag again! It's been so very long!
As much as I LOVE making bags, there just doesn't seem to be enough time to actually start and finish one in its entirety. The unfinished attempts that I have lying around testify to this and prevent me from plucking up the courage to try it anew when I know that I already have too much on my to-do list....
But this one was for a friend who would be leaving within a week or so, and I had promised, so there was nothing to do but to roll up my sleeves, grit my teeth and finish it....
Boy, was it fun!
I tend to forget that -even if it's under pressure- making a bag is so much FUN!
It's quite big, almost a shopping bag in size, and it's all natural cotton canvas with an overlaid lace in white and pink hues.
The front and back are different because of the design on the lace but I love both sides.
I learnt a new trick with this bag: how to add the kind of zipper you see in the photo above.
Does anyone know what it's called?
My friend wanted the same kind of zipper a bag of hers had, so I copied it off hers. I really liked the way it turned out, so I will definately be using this on bags from now on.
She loved it and whisked it off with her.
Though for a moment I wasn't sure that I'd be letting go....
