I had a lot of fun making this bag. I found the exterior fabric in the clearance section. I would love to have a chair in my bedroom done with this fabric. However, I made a purse instead! I wanted to add a piping detail, but all of the piping in the store was very loud so I went ahead and made my own piping. It was so easy. I will definitely do it again. I used the same fabric for the piping that I used on the inside of the bag. I did not use any tutorial in particular, but this one will show you how to do it yourself.
The next time I make this purse, I will make one more change to the pattern. I think it should be a little wider, so I will add a fabric strip between the front and back of the purse to make it a little larger. I am a huge fan of small purses and clutches, but, if you are going to carry a larger bag, it should be large enough to hold a lot more.
I can only hope Nicole enjoys it half as much as I enjoyed making it.
For those of you waiting for the skirt tutorial, I still have it in the works. Project is done, pictures are done, I just need to add the instructions.
