Today I got back to working on the swatch purse. I sewed most of the body pieces of the purse together. I sewed sides first then the bottom. I cut 1/4″ square notches out at each corner to make the bottom easier to sew. Below, the liner portion is pictured to the left and the part that will be the outside of the handbag, not quite complete, to the right.
I’m not sure how the top edges, where the strap will be attached, will lie, so I may need to readjust things at some point, but for now, this will do.
