|Wool fabric I bought from Harrogate Knitting |
and Stitching show
After cutting out 2x black pieces for the inside and 2x grey pieces for the outside (slightly longer so I could turn over on the inside of the bag) I stitched them both together then sat the black inside the grey and stitched round the top.
I had already decided I wanted to plait the handles and secured each of these to the bag with a heart. I then stitched a button in the middle of each heart to make the handles stronger for carrying more.
I then made the corsage by stitching several circles together with a button and pinned it to my new bag with a safety pin.
Had quite a few comments on my bag when we went out which made me happy.
