I'm working on a bag that has been ordered to carry a laptop or textbook but at the same time function as a cute handbag. I think I've managed to meet those requirements.
It's about half done. It was perhaps foolish to buy striped fabric as I have had to match the stripes horizontally around the entire bag then also match the straps that wrap vertically around. I stabbed my thumb with the eye end of a needle earlier this evening so I had to pack up since I can't sew with a big band aid plaster on.
