Isn't it great when you manage to combine all of the techniques that you have been learning and create something completely new. This bag is a one of a kind!!!
I've been really excited these last couple of days, creating this bag. As each stage of the process has been successfully completed, my heart has done a little jump!
I must admit to feeling VERY pleased with myself as I didn't follow a pattern, but just followed this tutorial which taught me how to insert a recessed zip and then played it by ear with the design.
There was one stage when I got carried away and ended up having to unpick lots and lots and lots. It serves me right for going on autopilot instead of checking the tutorial! I also got a bit carried away and forgot to interface the lining (oops!)
That said, I am really pleased with the finished result... Not bad for a first attempt! Next time I'll do better still!!!
Next bag project, some more buttercup bags with this fabric. I think I'm a bit addicted to making bags!
