I have recovered from my migraine…actually I woke up with it again this morning but I sent my Hubby to the drug store for pills…and after taking them and sleeping for an hour, I woke up like new! I hate migraines…they are like toothaches…I can live without them!
Now that my head isn’t pounding and I can look at the computer screen without a 1000 needles shooting through my brain…I can show you what I made this week…another purse! Surprise! LOL
I wanted a messenger like bag with a changeable front… I surfed the net for a pattern but couldn’t come up with exactly what I was looking for so I came up with this.
The inside…with lots of pockets
The back ….more pockets
The front with the flap up and more pockets….
The sides….don’t you love the buttons!
When Fall is over and I get sick of mushrooms…I can switch the front flap to this one ….don’t you just love this lace looking linen?
The flaps are interchangeable…they attach with Velcro….in a second you have a new purse! Don’t you love it ! Now I have to make a flap for Christmas .
This is just my first try and pro-type …but I was surprised how well it turned out. Next time I will try a few things different…like a zipper on the top…and maybe gusset sides.
There is one problem I have with the purse and I am not sure why…so could experienced purse sewers please tell me what I am doing wrong.
I don’t like that…I want it to hang nice and flat when I wear it……
Does anyone what I did wrong ??
Did I not use enough batting in the strap? (actually I only used interfacing)
Is the D ring to big ??( it is the same size as the slider)
What causes this ??
In the meantime I am going to try making a bag with a gusset…..wish me luck!
