A good friend is getting married next month. She asked me to make some bags for her to give as gifts to others who will be helping with her wedding in some way.
She chose a bag that was pleated and had a “U” shape. I found a pattern to use and got to work!
I made three of them. I took great care to put my best work into them. Sometimes I’m a hurried seamstress, wanting to finish one project so I can go on to the next.
But with these, I worked hard to make every seam look good. I learned a lot about how much work goes into making a purse.
I learned how to do magnetic snaps. I had no idea button holes were required! But I made the required button holes!
I even used interfacing, despite disliking the stuff. It really was necessary for use with quilting-weight fabric.
I am thinking of making another to put in my Etsy shop. Thoughts?
Speaking of weddings, my husband and I are celebrating eight years of marriage today!
