The size was OK but I love the shape of this replica of an old carpet bag but the handle is wimpy. Isn't it gorgeous?
which I found on Pinterest... to be really practical I'll have NO lace or trim on the bottom because I really use and abuse my bags. My boho bag I have now has a suede leather bottom which HAS worked great! What I really want is to combine the best of all these bags which brings me to my little red everyday bag
So when I actually get around to making another bag I'll try to adapt a pattern from this bag....larger and a different shape. Of course that means I will have to make two... The first will be a trial run which will not be quite right so I will have to make another to get it right... Now as I'm driving I will have to start thinking about themes and colors... Definitely black for one with maybe a magpie and lots of rhinestones and glitz... sometimes the planning and problem solving is as much fun as the actual doing.
