I received a lovely email from Sarah (Hunting For Ladybugs on Etsy), who has followed my Amelia Pleated Handbag sewing pattern to make the most delightful handbag. I’m very pleased to be able to share it here with you, by kind permission from Sarah.
I think the use of denim for the top bands and handle looks amazing, next to the gorgeous main body fabric. Bright, vibrant fabrics are a top favourite of mine. What a quality piece of work! As you can tell, I just love it!
”Just thought I’d send you a photo of your Amelia pleated bag pattern that I finally got around to making this morning. I used denim for around the bands and I didn’t have any of the strap hardware so I just left it out. I’m pleased with how I turned out. Thanks again.” Sarah
