I love handbags i love making them!
My latest creation is from Lisa Lam's of uhandblog book The bag making bible.
It is the first pattern in the book for the bucket bag.

With a few alterations as you can see i changed the handles to leather ones and made them shorter as i don't carry a handbag on my shoulder. 
The were made for me by the lovely lady at Bags of Handles.

I made the fabric up first using the technique that Lynne at Lilys quilts used for the Shabby chic Union Jack wall hanging project over at Moda Bake Shop.
Then i made up my lining adding pockets to keep things organised, this means the bag is not reversable.

Added very cute feet to the bottom of the bag ... i love these they are practical and cute as well as simple to fit.
The lit
tle feet came from Lisa Lam's shop over at U-Handbag, there is loads of great supplies over there for making bags definately worth a look. 

I am really pleased with the way it turned out it is nice and roomy and such a cute shape.
I am already planing my next one or 2 ...... or 3!

Happy Quilting xx :-)
