A while ago my mum asked me to make her a handbag like the one I had made for myself. Today, I dusted off my sewing machine and set to work.
I designed this particular bag for myself about two years ago. I wanted something with plenty of space for my stuff, yet compact enough that nothing rattled around and got lost. I achieved this by making the top band of the bag very tall and adding a small pleated section to the bottom to add extra space. I also included two interior pockets to prevent small things getting lost.
