How do you like my new flower handbag? I wanted something big enough to carry a book or project along with a few necessities and also small enough that i didn’t feel like I was taking along the kitchen sink.
After looking through my stash, I found the flower material. Just one small problem, it was only a fat quarter with a hunk taken out. Determined to use this material I located other material in my stash that coordinated with it and sat down to design my perfect handbag. My finished bag measures 14″w (across the top) x 10″h x 4″d x 11″w (at the bottom). The handles are 20″ long. I also placed pockets around the inside of the bag for pens, pencils, emery board, cell phone, measuring tape, etc. For the bottom, I covered a piece of plastic canvas for stability. I used a medium weight interfacing to add a little more body to the bag.
