In preparing for this challenge, I came across a bag that I absolutely loved by Michael Kors. This particular bag goes for $995.00. No way would I ever pay that no matter how much I love MK. I pretty much recreated this bag. You can look here and see how I did. I looked that bag over carefully and drafted a pattern.
I'm a sucker for well made hardware and Emmaline Bags added this new little blingy thing to her stock. I think it really polishes the bag!
here. But after I got it almost made, I decided it too, was to wimpy for this bag. Then my brain started storming with this one grey cord in my hand, I I thought, what if I double up and twist them together???? So I went for it! I think It was pretty perfect for this bag! And really, it was easier to make then it looks! So easy, I made a longer one in case I want to swap it out for a shoulder strap
I know it looks kind of goofy with this long strap standing up, haha! Let me know if anyone is interested in a tutorial of this strap! It's looks complex, but really, it's not!!!
So there you have it. I will be working on another variation of this bag in a more fun fabric for this challenge.I can't wait to see all of the bags at Purse Palooza 2013 with Sara from Sew Sweetness!
