I have never made a bag before, but thought there ought to be a first time for things.
So I followed the directions from an awesome tutorial here and came up with this....
This is my first attempt, I have already learnt a few little things from making this first one. This is not the bag I will be using in the swap, I will be bettering the art of bag making and making another for the swap, but for a trial run, I was impressed with myself.
My mum has a pattern for another bag as well, so will give that one a trial run.
Depending on how easy the 2nd bag is, will decide on which style I decide to make for the friendship swap later on.
