Handbags for Magpie Market

 To continue my line of similar materials and colours, I began last week to attempt ten handbags in a week. Then I realised I had only the material for five. Also I had a job for five days, so unfortunately I utterly failed in that respect.

But I am unemployed again! So here is what I managed to achieve up to Sunday night. 

The hardest part of this I always find is matching up the materials, I tend to lie them all out and just stare at them for a while feeling a little lost. After about ten minutes I came up with the groupings above. The colours don't stand out quite as well in these photos but you get the general idea.

I then cut out the materials to exactly the same shape as each piece. I find that no matter how accurate I try to be I always find my pieces are each a little different.

And after some sewing, and swapping of threads etc, this is the finished product! I haven't done the straps as of yet, that's a job for today. I will post again when they are finished.
