Verypurpleperson's fabulous Reversible Bag, irreversible version
I used a silver printed (silver color coated) linen, as a main body of the bag. Because the silver print was certainly heat sensitive, I couldn't use my irons at all but had to use my fingers and nails to make all seams open this time. It was so funny to see myself seriously trying seams flat and open with my own organs and body temperature. I was funnily believing that I could make it look fine and neat this time. It is usually impossible! I love love love my irons at all, I can't sew without them.
Other than missing the ironing pleasure, I enjoyed making it very much.
As you can see in the pictures, I have put a pocket and a set of magnetic button closure inside, and some of my handmade flowers outside.
I'm so happy with the result, and love the pattern indeed. Thank you Novita, though I made it not reversible while it was intended to be useful in that way. I think I'm carrying this bag everywhere, it is pretty as well as so very useful!
