After mending some clothes that had rips and tears I decided to cut out the pieces for the Betsy handbag from the Burda Style website, which you can download for free.
Before I knew it I had whipped up this little baby. Ok so I didn't actually follow the instructions. I used the pattern to cut out the fabric but the instructions were still a bit jibberish to me so I just tried to apply common sense! Well it turnd out ok
The only things that didn't work out were:
- I forgot about the straps and had to sew them on afterwards, still works just looks a little funky!
- You can see the seams on the inside. I'm pretty sure if you actually followed the instructions it shows a way where they can be hidden in the lining somehow
Oh well! I was still pleased as punch to finish this little baby. I will now work actually understanding the instructions and try to follow that to make some christmas presents and maybe even one for a giveaway, stay tuned!
