Cute Little Handbag

A few weeks ago, I won this adorable fabric in a fat quarter piece from the Kelani blog - yay for me! It's called 'Retro Bambi in Red on Peach'.


And on Friday night, I decided to make a little handbag from it, using a Simplicity pattern # 4650. By Saturday night it was finished, and it didn't turn out too bad at all :-P

Lined in an off-white and black damask-y flower print..

Finished with a magnetic snap clip...

and some top-stitching..


I had fun making it, and have another one or two planned in my head. Next project though : Amy Butler's Zinnia Cushion in the 24" design - should be a challenge and a half!
