new handbag

Sunday, October 7, 2007

I made this little handbag with the Flea Market bag pattern from Grand Revival Design yesterday. While it took me a while to figure out how to read the pattern (I do much better with color photos), I was able to figure it out and put it together fairly quickly. Now that I understand the pattern it will be much easier to duplicate it next time.

I bought the fabric last Saturday at the sewing expo. It's a japanese fabric made by Etsuko Furuya. Other patterns in the line can be purchased here and here . I've been eyeing this fabric ever since I started sewing last year and was so excited to see it in person. It's a thick cotton canvas and is so nice to work with. I wish I had purchased more of this fabric line, but my wallet and Jon thank me for having some restraint!


  1. I love your bag - looks fantastic!

  2. Oooh it looks gorgeous! PIQF (pacific international quilt festival) is this weekend, and I'm so excited to look at fabrics and patterns... looks like it's going to be a spendy weekend!
