New handbag and fourth finish!

I have had a kit for the Simply Stylish Handbag from u-handbag for ages.   The kit came with everything needed - fabric, interfacing, closure, leather strap.  And apart from one little bit I needed to read a couple of times before I understood it it was easy enough to put together. 

Actually having someone else choose the fabrics does make things go a lot quicker - made me realise just how much time I spend doing that though it is something I enjoy doing.  So I wouldn't want to do that every time.

So here are the stages I went through making this bag

Not that many photos as it was so quick!   I did add a flush zipped pocket inside - because everyone wants one of those right?  

Love the leather strap which I handstitched in place using aurifil #12.  It makes a nice professional looking touch I think.

And this is also another make from my list !  

I'll be linking it up to the Finish-A-Long at the end of the quarter.

Here is my original list.
