Of course it’s not perfect. Is any bag perfect?
- I love the fabric mix.
- I love the size.
- I love the inside pockets.
- I love upcycling
(strap, hardware and zipper are from an old purse)
- Check marks all my wish list.
Not so good:
- The lining fabric wasn’t stiff enough to stand up. I had to add boning at the sides.
- My stitching wasn’t perfect. The faux leather kept stretching which caused some puckering. Still more to learn. Fortunately, it’s not on the public side. I have a new roller foot that should eliminate this as a problem.
One design flaw that is bugging me, that can’t be fixed…yet. The inside curve of the bottom is bulging out. I wanted the inside curve to fit around the hip for comfort and to sit on a table without toppling over. This will take some thinking.
I wish I had time to make a matching wallet. Maybe next week.
Am I always thinking about the NEXT project. Yep, I think the next bag will be a slouchy style.
