Yes, I made this! Here's how.
First I went to the purse graveyard.
Chose my TWO favorite purses...
Hmmm... which one do I want to make?
The red one. But not in red.
Wait... can my Bernina sew leather? Sort of... I think I asked it to do more than it is really built for. More on this later...
First, practice! Made this a couple weeks ago. Leather trim.
That was a bit tricky. Need more practice!
50% off all Craftsy classes. Perfect! Learned a few more things.
Now I'm ready. Made a pattern. Made a muslin mock up.
Made the lining. Added some awesome pockets. Attached proper hardware.
And you may not agree... but damn, I do feel like a genius.
One last thing. The final touch.
I'm planning to carry my new leather bag on my trip to Japan. Leaving soon. Packing the rest of my bags now. Can't wait!
