My first bag

I bought a My Mind's Eye bag kit about a year ago but until now, haven't had the confidence to make it up.  Last night I decided to go for it - nothing ventured...nothing gained so I started cutting it out.  It was all very straight forward but I wanted to add some interfacing to make it a bit more structured rather than floppy if you understand what I mean so I cut out some Pellon to iron on to the lining.

I sewed the handles before I went to bed and got on with the rest after lunch today and within an hour or so it was all done:D


I'm absolutely thrilled with it and am in my starting blocks to make another Lol!  However, I probably won't make one quite so big next time - this one is perfect for carrying around my scrapbooking stash and will fit a pizza box in nicely.
