I made my first bag the other day. I shopped a local fabric store and found some super cute fabric. I found the pattern online here and thought even a half-ass like me could make this. I was sort of right. I like to wing things if I don't know the rules or if I don't have the right materials or skills. In this case, rules and skills were slightly lacking.
Without further ado, here's close ups of the fabric.
The outer fabric:
The inner lining and straps: Notice anything funny about this fabric. I didn't either at first. Then I noticed the woman smoking a pipe. Wearing a poppy hat, no less. What could she be smoking? Hmmm. We'll never know.
The finished product.
A seamstress I am not. But I made a darn cute bag.
