What I’m working on 7 (blog-a-day challenge, day 18)

More on the swatch handbag:

Today I decided to redo the ends of the straps – basically, to add a piece to make the strap the width of the handbag. First, I tried to make half circle additions and that didn’t work out (see right of picture below). So, I ended up making the angled pieces as you can see to the left of the picture. I did have to use some scraps from another swatch to make the new pieces.

Please pardon the odd light in the photograph – I wasn’t able to take pictures while the sun was still out.

I think I may be able to finish up this handbag tomorrow. Yay!swatch purse day 6 strap ends 2
