I hate when I get the urge late at night to start making something because I just know I’ll stay up waaaaay too late working on it. Of course, that was the case last night. The result, this mini quilted handbag:
You wouldn’t believe, but this started out as something COMPLETELY different. I was just sort of “wingin’ it” so it’s no wonder it ended up totally opposite of what I originally had in mind! I’ve been wanting to do a large shoulder/tote bag out of this material so this made a great miniature mock up.
This was the first time making handles like these, and it was easier than I thought. It wasn’t wise however, to attempt sewing them on while being so tired. What a pain to put on! It also didn’t help that I had to put them on once the main body of the bag was already constructed (due to my “wingin’ it”).
