As someone who is slightly obsessed with buying handbags, the idea of making my own was too much of a temptation. My first bag was an Amy Butler Tulip bag using some liberty print fabric as the trim and lining. I followed the instructions religiously until I came to the magnetic closure which I didn’t have, it was time to improvise and a rummage in my gran’s old button box, which is an Aladdin’s cave full of treasures and worthy of a blog post in it’s own right, produced the perfect yellow button
I embarked on my second bag using the same pattern but this time using some FQ’s from My Fabric House and another button. Improvising again I put a little detail on the back of the button tie
Now I was starting to get ambitious and decided to have a go at my own patten and design. I was pretty pleased with the results.
I shall never be short of a bag again, not that I could ever be accused of not having enough handbags!
