"Princess Liberty Bag."

Hello,

I had a productive day for Friday Sew In. I chose the pattern " Princess" which came from the Homespun Pink Issue Number 64 Volume 9.9. This bag was designed by Monica Pool of Moon Shine Designs.


I changed the handles, I originally had them made of the tapestry fabric but they were too thick and uncomfortable. 


So I made them up with the lining fabric and made them a inch or two longer to suit my size. There is a secret pocket  in the bottom which holds the template plastic for the base. A magnetic clasp holds the bag together, plus there is a small pocket inside to hold keys etc.This pattern was easy to follow and stitch up.

Special thanks to Wendy for hosting Friday Night Sew In.

Happy days.
Bev C
