I have made what I am going to refer to as my first official purse– simply because it has a pocket and snaps 🙂 I cheated a little because I used store bought handles. But I really needed to cut myself break this weekend and stitching handles last weekend stressed me out. I try.
I found denim on sale a few weeks ago (I should have kept those old jeans I just threw out, I knew they would come in handy). I had a tough time with the handles and quickly made friends with the seam ripper. It all worked out in the end!
I am on a mission to learn how to properly install a zipper and attach tote handles. The zippers are giving me fits. Sometimes they come out great, and most of the time, not so good. I need to figure out why its so inconsistent. I think my pinning/clipping is not so great and things get wonky. Look at those cats! I’m making myself a bag with them!
