My first bag since about a year is finished! (see, i've sewn many )
Nowadays I'm happy again sewing bags because of my lovely new sewing machine. My old one (still comfortably on a corner on my working table) just couldn't sew leather which I wanted to try for a long time.
So now a shoulder bag was born today, one with leather bottom and self designed and home printed fabric on top, an adjustable strap (by poppers) from 66 cm to 125 cm, a key clip and three inner pockets, closes with a zipper, €95 excl shipping, incl VAT/BTW. You can order it here.
There's more to come as you can see in the pictures. What do think of it?
I made a textile painting too. In my student days I used to paint a lot, now I try to make it look the same but with handprinted designs and layers of fabric and stitching.
And you may congratulate Tineke and her blog Stop:watch here, it's their birthday tomorrow (April 24) :-)
