Creative Handbags Special
WHSmiths on 8th June. Having taxed my brain in working through the projects to check that they work and are understandable, I fancied having a go at making some. Here are the three bags I made from one pattern, which really appealed to me.
The fabric for these bags is all from Ikea. It is cheap and bright and I bought it specially for trying out bags so it doesn't matter if I mess up. But happily, as I was following the pattern, the bags worked beautifully. I'm quite tempted to work my way through the Creative Handbag magazine as there are so many lovely bags to choose from and I may not be into high fashion, I do love my bags!
