I think I'm safe to show off this present since its for a lady at work who doesn't know about the blog. Ever tried explaining blogs to folk at work who aren't into the nerdy world of the internets? Don't do it, you come away feeling even more of a dork than normal.
I've made loads of these bags in the past, especially when the Etsy shop was up and running. Having not made them in a while though, I've not practiced and so this bag was a tad wonky in places. The straps are uneven widths and the lining is too big, meaning there's an ugly pleat down one side. Hopefully she'll like it anyway, it's the same material as Danica's bag, it used to be a pair of curtains in a previous life. Gotta love a bit of 'upcycling'!
These photos came out all blurry for some reason, they don't look blurry on my phone but sadly I'd wrapped and given it away before I realised! You'll have to squint a bit to compensate.
