well, first isn't quite right, I remember having made plenty when I was in my teens. They were very fashionable then. I made a poncho and a cushion, for my mum (she still has it !)
Now I'm into bags. The old felted one is getting a bit worn out, so it's time for a new one.
I started it with the summer in mind, hoping for some sunshine, and choose beach colours.
A very bright combination, it makes me happy to walk around with it, even if the sun isn't shining as it should.
So i undid the lining, and added a plastic sort of lining, I secured it to the grannies on the inside, and then finished with the dotted fabric. That's much better !
|it's light and invisible, but gives body to the bag|
|the bag can stand up straight|
|I added 3 side - grannies for more volume|
|It can easily hold a book.|
|I'm happy with my new bag !|
