Half Moon Handbag
Today I had an afternoon almost free. My mother was visiting yesterday so a lot of house work was done. The boys and I went for a run this morning, and with the school holidays there isn't as much baking and getting ready for the next day pressure.
In August I signed up for the Curlypops Choose your own bag adventure. I had such great plans .. but then the flu hit and there was time off work and school and pushing ourselves to meet deadlines, when really, we should have been asleep.
This bag is the Half Moon Handbag by Michelle's patterns with a few changes. I have added an inside zip pocket and omitted the button closure and added a simple press stud. With just 30 cm of fabric and a matching fat quarter plus interfacing, this is a cute, casual bag to make in no time. The pattern is available here as a pdf download - and costs $3 USA.
I think this little bag with be good with jeans. Maya thinks it will be good for her.
