I finished my second handbag project today. This is the large version of the other bag I made. I'm going to use it to carry around my crochet works in progress and my embroidery stuff. Yes, I've started to learn embroidery too. I'm obsessed with crafts now. At least I have something to show for my time spent crafting as opposed to time I used to spend on WoW.
I'm very excited about the machine buttonhole I used for the closure. I sat down last night and learned to use it, and I will be putting buttonholes in everything now! It was so easy. I found a few kits for making fabric covered buttons in my grandma's sewing stuff so I think I'll play with those on my next project.
I ordered some fabrics and another pattern from Repro Depot's sale page today. They were all $6.00/yard or less. Two of them were only $3.00/yard!! I can't wait to try that Amy Butler Frenchy Bag. It will be torturous waiting for this stuff! I picked UPS Ground because it was free.
