Ok girls the flower is all your allowed to see…
(If you’re one of my BM DO NOT read on, Please!! –
Si eres una de mis damas NO LEAN este post, por favor!!)
I started this project about four months a go, but the main reason why I couldn't finish was because I was questioning if they’ll like it or not or if they’ll use it at all. I wanted to give them something they would not use at our wedding because I’m already giving them the dresses as my gift for the day.
So I though about a handbag, I've made handbags before, but just for me. Making something for someone else is totally different (in my head) because I know exactly how I want things, but for my girls, even though I know them and I know about their taste, I have no idea the shapes they’ll like more on a handbag.
SO I decided to play safe, simple shape, soft gray color (With purple fabric on the inside, that has some silver sparks), a detachable pin (incase they don't like it) and with zipper and pockets -Who doesn't love pockets and zippers, Right? :)
I started cutting the squares for all the parts I already draw on my notebook with an approximate height and width, I iron all the pieces and shaped the holder stripes and inner pocket so the sewing can be a little more smooth
Since I don't have levels or anything fancy to attach on the inside, I engraved my mane to a big clear heart and attach it with purple ribbon so they can remember that I love them :)
And here… the final product!
For the other bags I slightly changed the size on the bottom by not attaching the fold on the bottom, that makes the bags not so squares.
Because I call it a day on the sewing department this is my work so far.
I just need to finish the details on the other 3 handbags and I’m ready.
But now I wonder, would this be enough of a gift? or Do I need to buy something else for them? maybe something to fill the bags with?
Can you girls (and boys) help me? Do you feel this is a good-as-it-is gift? or I need to brainstorm to complete their presents?
