I needed a sewing project that had a deadline attatched to ensure I would finish it so I joined the "handmade handbag" swap over at Swap-bot. This is the bag I made.
My partner likes the color blue and on my search for a blue print, I fell in love with this one. I didn't save the slevedge but I remember is said 'Bohemian" so it is possibly from Robert Kaufman's Bohemian Rhapsody line.
I used linen for the neutral fabric and the wooden beaded handles are from my stash. I have five pairs of these handles that I picked up on clearance about a year ago. I have been waiting for a project to use them in.
I did pleats on the sides of the print. Just a small detail but it gave the bag a little something special.
I really hope my partner enjoys this bag. I am enjoying the sasifaction of completing a project, a rare event for me.
