I made this awesome purse for someone at work. I loved this bag and almost almost regret selling it because I loved it so much.

She didn’t like my original design colours (grey and something) and then started asking for red/black or vibrant colours and it needed this and needed that and I was like okay nevermind I am so not making you a purse anymore……I don’t like people infringing on my creative process.

 

So after much thought and sifting through my fabric stash I found this red and black awesomeness and received some free stash from M that I used for the liner. It was a nice heavy fabric that gave the bag a nice weight and made it “more winter/cold weather friendly”. I also used some of the wool from my old winter coat for the bottom, sides and button clasp as well as the button, it came from the coat also.

You like the little bird right? I use them on all the projects I am really proud of they also came from M’s stash way back in the day

The end result was simply fantastic. One pocket on the inside running the length of the bag, a pocket on either end all with elastic tops to minimize things from falling out. Button closure. Two medium length straps perfect for keeping the bag under arm or to hang at a reasonable height from your elbow. Seriously I loved this creation.
