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!
