Dutch Houses Bag
Yesterday I finished my Dutch Houses Bag! I used my white on black Dutch Houses design printed on linen-cotton canvas for the exterior and the black on white design printed on quilting weight cotton for the lining.
The bag has pockets for my wallet, keys and mobile phone, and a magnetic closure. It stands on six bag feet. The handles are from U-handbag, and I also made grateful use of Lisa's book in making this bag. I love that this book does not just have patterns for bags (it has quite a few) but lots of information on subjects such as interlining, closures, pockets etc etc etc so you can design your own bag (as I did here).
In my handmade bag I carry around my (er... hubby's) Kindle in its handmade cover, my sunglasses in their handmade case and my handmade purse with all sorts of small items (tissues, USB stick, work pass etc) - quite a showcase, eh? ;-)
