spring bag

I finally made myself something. I love making things for other people and for work but sometimes you just need something nice for yourself, ya know? I used a pattern from Simple Sewing which is beautifully styled and photographed.

Please excuse the wonky stitching. My sewing machine needs to be serviced badly. I added a little surface decoration with good ol' freezer paper stencils, made the interior pocket bigger and the straps shorter.

It's a little floppy so I might reline it with the same denim as the exterior. One day.
