Summer Bag

I love this bag! It was trauma to make and I can point out every mistake, but I do love it. It's Vogue 7889 and the fabric is, of course, what makes it. It was a remnant that probably cost a few bucks. The fabric is heavy, the interfacing is heavy and I probably broke at least a few needles before I finished! If I made it again, I would definitely not interface the tabs all the way to the edge as they were very difficult to attach to the body -- way too much fabric, interfacing, etc. Unless you have an industrial machine, it gets a bit sketchy if your fabric is heavy.

But, with all its faults, it garners lots of compliments (for the fabric, not the workmanship) and holds lots of things that are easy to get to.
