Work in Progress Wednesday -Starting Bag Construction

I've been doing more thinking than constructing, but I want it to be good, so I have to think about it first.  Here is the woven piece folded over and laid out with the handles (nothing joined yet).  



I picked apart the sleeve of a kimono to use for the lining. I like the sparkle design.  I cut out the lining - the bottom is the fold on the right. 




I thought I would add a pocket inside, but this fabric is very difficult to put a needle through.  I'm still thinking about the pocket.    Maybe I'll actually start the construction by next time.

  5. I don't like the thinking part. I am all about doing which is probably why my sewing projects don't turn out! Love your bag. It will be nice.

  7. Wow, such great colours for your bag. And the lining fabric is just gorgeous. You are right - all the thinking before makes it easier to do the assembling.

  8. The lining will be great for the beautiful weave. Slippery fabric helps to put things into and take them out of the bag.

  9. Your bag plan is great! I like the colours, and, yes, the lining will certainly make it easier to put things in and take them out again!
