Snow Day Handbag

The kids have been home from school for three days now! This is what happens when we get snow and ice in Atlanta with very little equipment to clear the roads. We’re definitely starting to get cabin fever, but luckily we have power. I even found some time to sew. For this handbag I again used an embroidered cotton, this time with a Tana Lawn Liberty of London print. Both fabrics were picked up during our visit to Purl Soho back in September.

I made a basic bag, actually quite similar to a simple tote bag, but with knotted straps. I used fusible fleece to reinforce the outer portion and a heavy-weight interfacing to bulk up the lining. There is a magnetic snap and simple pocket on the interior.
