My First Handbag

This is my very first handbag that was not stitched into a rectangle. My very first hard handbag.
It was challenging at first but I did it. The straps were the most difficult for me. The linen would not fold straight and I made then to wide. Next time I will do better. I added a very beautiful antique button to hold the bag closed.

I found the tutorial for this handbag here: Sewingtutes
The pretty white and linen cherub fabric & stripe fabric: Au fil du Temps
"T" Initial Lace Monogram: Etsy Shop - Lovepea
Lace I found on ebay
