The Cutest Bag I've Ever Made!

Hi There !
After a super restful weekend I've been a busy bunny this morning finishing off a custom order for a friends daughter. This lucky little girl will be receiving what is now Officially 'The Cutest Bag I have EVER made' !!! Taaa Daaaaa....

Wellie-tastic fabric!

I had lots of fun picking the fabrics for this project and it was my first time using complicated equipment like dog clips , double sliders & D-hooks. I'm simply D-lighted with how it turned out !!!

The dog clips, D-rings & slider give it a very professional finish.

How the straps attach at the back.

 The new owner of this bag loves horses so I picked this funky wellie print for the exterior and  I've lined the bag with some galloping horses to make her smile every time she opens up her new bag.

Sling bag - there are 2 handy pockets inside too.
 I followed the pattern for the Cross Body Purse in the 'Sew Serendipity Bags' Book by Kay Witt.
This is the third book I've made from this book and by far the easiest (once I got over my fear of D-rings!).
I followed the pattern pretty much to the letter except for the fact that I added a velcro closure rather than a super expensive clasp.


I'm hoping that mom & daughter are happy with the finished bag ... I sure am !



Thanks for visiting & come back soon !

Love

  14. The person that you have made this for is very lucky. The boot material is lovely and I love the horse material "to give her a smile whenever she opens it up". This attention to detail is amazing. I hope that you have a very happy Christmas.
