Here's my first attempt at making a handbag! I found this embroidered fabric in the remnants at the craft store half off the sale price and I got the interior fabric for free as a hand me down. My very first thought when I saw the fabric was that it was so organic looking and would be so cute as a tote! I made it to put some items in at a store or something, but it has turned into my official bag or purse. I was carrying diapers around in a grocery sack wherever I went so that I would avoid overloading things into a bag, but I am trying to keep my tote to the minimal and it looks cuter than a plastic bag! Hope you like it and hope to make more. I know with each sewing project I learn more and more--it's definitely a hobby where you learn as you try!
