Thank you for stopping by my Blog Today. I was browsing Pinterest the other day & i came across a Ladies Leather Handbag. I loved the style & shape & had a go at making it out of paper & card. I am quite pleased with the result & i hope you are to. Its pretty straight forward to make & the best thing is that you don't need any dies to make it. All you need is paper, card, a pencil & ruler.
I have had a sewing machine for a while now & i love the look of sewing on your paper. My Daughter is learning to sew as she wants to make her own cosplay costumes. I thought this would be the perfect chance for me to give it a go as the machine was already out. I am still a learner so its not perfect but i am happy with the result.
The handle is just a string of pearls that someone sent me in a swap last year. I really like the way it looks & gives it a quite elegant feel.
I hope you will give this sweet little bag a go. You can find all the measurements below & i will also put the link to my video at the end of this post.
