Well it's done and already gifted to a friend for her birthday... the Book Bag.
I think there are some details still to be sorted but I do like it.
Typically, the bits I like best are not mine.... like Lucie's oilcloth which I used for the
lining. My hope is the plastic will save the linen and keep some structural integrity
for the shape.
I'm also liking the new strap and buckles which I bought from Nicole's shop ages ago...
Honestly, it was the best handbag supplies store on the net but unfortunately
doesn't operate anymore :( ...anyone know what happened there?
Actually, I should add that I took these photos before I'd finished sewing down the
side panels for the strap... so that's why they look like they're lifting up. Hmmm.
Anyway, that's it... the book bag. All feedback happily received :)
