I finally had a day to spend making my "Hey Mercedes" bag from my favourite Cotton + Steel fabric.
The bottom and side panel tapers to meet the side seams. I was a little worried about the sewing but....
It worked out fine!
Zippered inner pockets and a snap closure to keep everything safe.
The square rings for the handles were purchase through Emmaline Bags. She is a Canadian distributor of bag hardware out of Alberta. I found her delivery to be fast and without those cross border fees and shipping.
The pattern is from the book Windy City Bags. I met Sara in Houston and had a hard time waiting for this book to be released. Now that it is in my hot little hands I may have to make a few more from the book.
Linking up with Finish it up Friday!
