A handmade bag

My lovely Great Aunt celebrated her 80th birthday in August! Like me, she loves bags, so I knew I wanted to make her a bag. The question was what pattern to use…

I found my answer in this issue of Make it Yourself.

It’s one of those nifty bags with one handle shorter than another and the handle loops through the other for a great close.

My aunt loves great patterns and color, so I went with this fabric from my stash for one side and the inside pocket, plus a very lightly patterned blue for the reverse side.

She loved it! I was so glad. I am working on a version for myself– it’s on my list of projects for Selfish Sewing Week.
