Here is rather a big clue. A magnetic snap fastener!
Yes, a handbag!
Ta-daa! The front!
I also made the strap narrower and shorter, stitching it on this time with the buttons just for decoration.
I put some strong card in the bottom so that it didn't sag. (I wish someone could do that to my bottom.) And lined it with a pretty floral, including a couple of little pockets.
Do you like it? I'm really pleased with it, but I think I'll have to have another go - I prefer a rounder, squishy shaped handbag. I think this one will end up in Karens shop.
Here is a little taste of todays sewing session.
I'm afraid I can't show you anymore just yet as it's a little gift for someone special.
