Charming Handbag II
I started a second handbag on Sunday, but this time I used a thicker twill for the outside. I had fabric left over from a pair of pants I started years ago, and then lost some of the pattern pieces! When I turned it from outside in to inside out, it was difficult because the fabric was so thick. The result: my seams opened up at the curves, where there was the most stress.
Last night I revisited the handbag and added a trim to the top...I know it has an unfinished look but that's what I was going for. I still need to add the handle strap.
