Today I made myself a lovely new bag, out of some gorgeous silky material. As it was a prototype, it was bound to go wrong, but that's the way the cookie crumbles! It's a messenger bag, and I used the tutorial by mmmcrafts. Click here to try it out.
1. I wanted to let the fabric speak for itself.
2. I'd probably mess it up, what with it being a prototype and all.
Of course, I did mess up the flap. I sewed it in the wrong way round, meaning that when I joined it up, the flap was stuck inside the outside and lining. I had to cut a hole to get the flap through, and then sew it up again. So, all in all, ot the most succesful bag ever, but I'm pretty proud of it! That's because it's the first boxed bottom I've ever tried. (Do you call it boxed? I'm really not sure!) I expected it to be really difficult and mystical, but in fact it was really easy!
