I finished this bag earlier in the week as an order for a friend and it turned out very funky and practical. I have lots of bag ideas swirling around in my head so decided that I should give each different one a name - for myself more than anything else. So I named this one the Charlotte Bag!
It'smade using two beautiful Moda fabrics - the main fabric is from the Freebird range by Momo and is aptly called Garden and the red contrast is one of the Bliss range by Bonnie and Camille and is called Fresh. The fabric is given structure with some iron on interfacing on both outside and lining fabrics and the shape is a gentle A line with an inverted pleat in the middle. I use a slightly curved line on at the top, tapering around upwards for the long strap and there is a small pocket for a mobile phone inside.
The bag is nice and deep, but is very slimline at the top. With additional stitching at the straps to strengthen them, this is a practical and trendy bag and I'm making another for myself right now!
