It is the first time I participate in anything like this. Part of the challenge was to choose at least 3 items from a mystery list to be included in the entry. I chose five items. So that’s the reason this bag includes more hardware than my designs usually do.
The handles have boning inside to make them really stiff. I have also used a turn lock as the bag closure and rivets to secure the handles to the bag.
On the inside I have used a zipper for a secure pocket and a swivel hook to keep the keys safe and easy to find in the bag.
To keep the bag sturdy I have used medium weight fusible woven interfacing on the outer fabric and then iron on batting on top of that. On the lining I have used light weight fusible woven interfacing.
I am really happy with how it turned out, especially the boning in the handles and the rivets.
Until next time happy sewing and take care!
