Well, I've been talking about this project for a long time now and I actually finished it and posted it off this week!
I made the bag from black felt and a faux pony skin, a combination which worked very well. I took a long time over it. The inside is lined with a plain black cotton and there are eyelets in the top threaded through with cord. A magnetic fastening finishes the centre front..
I've donated this to 'Design and Make for Haven's Sake'. It's a Fashion Show in aid of the Safe Haven Children's Trust in Cambodia. It will run alongside London Fashion Week. See the post below for more information of where and when.
