I recently went to Paris and wanted a lightweight handbag that could be folded up really small but also hold the seemingly endless amount of useful stuff I require when on holiday. I shopped around for a while but couldn’t find anything remotely close to what I had in mind – cue new project! I got a few ideas together and with the help of my trusted sewing machine was able to make a really great bag that fitted all my needs and in my favourite colours, blue and orange. Since the Paris bag I’ve made 2 more for a friend from work and her daughter, they are just perfect for holidays and can be made in almost any size and colour. I really enjoyed choosing the fabrics, I especially love the girlie lining to this yellow bag, it’s so cute and my friend’s daughter is now telling everyone she has a designer bag!!
