Bag #12

Frenchy Handbag

A little out of order here. Another Amy Butler pattern (my third). As everyone knows, her patterns are very easy to follow and she loves interfacing. She also is quite generous in the fabric allowance. I would do it with less fabric next time. I'm definitly making this one again. I'm going to do the shoulder bag size next with Denyse Schmidt's country faire.

There's loads of interfacing in this one. More than necessary (and more than the pattern called for). I wanted to see what would happen. It definitly holds its shape. A jeans needle makes sewing this much easier.

What I learned: New handle attachment technique, new pocket application (not one I find functional)
