I have done my 2nd handmade bag last weekend..It took me a few days to complete the task, whereas for a competent bag maker will only take a few hours :(
The learning process is always hard. Even though I am following the steps by steps guide from the book, I still make mistakes here and there, especially on the measurements and my machine kept giving me problems. I have wasted a lot of time on alterations, am glad that I did it..at least it looks like a bag and it is a bag. It could have been in a better shape and form if I have the padding materials for the bag.
With the limited choice of fabric in my collections to choose from, I made this bag for my daughter.
the flap is done 1st
the wrong side of the lining and cover of the bag are sewed up together
the inside of the bag
the back pocket
the bag is done with Olaf as decoration
big enough to fit in a Tab 3.
My daughter is asking for a water bottle carrier bag, that would be my next project. Hope I could do a better job.
