Here is the second handbag I made yesterday while snowed in. I winged it based on a picture I saw here. This is my "natural light" photo from this morning:
But I thought the color was really washed out so I took more photos with the lights on and no flash.
The next time I make one of these, I will fix the stuff I did wrong. I forgot to clip the curve of the handle so it is a little bunched up around the lining. I made the bottom of the strap too wide and the length of the handle too short to tie the top (which is why there is a button on top of the strap). One thing I did that I like is I made a little box pleat on the top of the pocket. I think next time I will add a flap.
I put some pockets in the inside too.
Overall I think it came out ok, but next one will definitely be better. Unfortunately I had to spend my morning digging out the driveway so I could report to work at 11 am, so maybe over the weekend I'll do the next one!
