It's done peeps!
And I went with ORANGE piping!
That was because it was the only piping I had that actually matched a color in the bag. It's lined with canvas to give it some structure. I was going to try a zippered pocket, but ran out of time.
It's Simplicity 8331 from the 90's.
The fabric is Timeless Treasures. I bought a half yard on ebay. Little scraps are left. This fabric was not printed on grain, and it veered off toward the edges. So it's not perfectly, er, level. Also I had to make the bag handles in different directions due to lack o' fabric.
I've made one of these bags for each PR weekend I've attended. and one for Christmas.

I will be tweeting! #prwknd
And yes, I watched all 4 epis of the Great British Sewing Bee. And I *loved* each and every one. More please.
the orange is an awesome choice - still a great colour but not too clashing with all the other colours in the bag. I admire your patience in making all those bags, I find bag making so fiddly. Have a great holiday, especially at the PR weekend, I look forward to seeing you pop up on other people's blogs!ReplyDelete
Ah, so cute! Another statement bag! Enjoy your time off and away.ReplyDelete
I loved the great British sewing bee.ReplyDelete
I paticularly loved the positive drama as opposed to the usual reality show --i.e.project runway
Terrific bag. I could use a "keep calm" something or other in my life right now! Have a great trip.ReplyDelete
Too cute! Enjoy your vacation!ReplyDelete
