A Sewing Finish





I finished the bag I started on Wednesday today. I found this cute fabric of cats and handbags at Joann's several months ago. I decided the obvious choice was to make a bag with it. It wasn't easy. The fabric is thin so I used with a heavy interfacing which was difficult to work with. I also had some trouble figuring out the directions. I had to set it aside several times and then go back and play with the pieces until I figured it out. Since this is going to be a large tote that I use to bring a smaller purse, my lunch and book to work I didn't add several of the decorative details. Overall I'm really pleased with how it turned out.
