I fell in love with this "Ghastly's" print by Alexander Henry the minute I first laid eyes on it! Well, I finally made myself the purse I had been envisioning since I bought the fabric. I am in love! All month I have been following Sew Sweetness: Purse Palooza 2013 and admiring all the awesome bags, pattern reviews and coveted daily give away prizes. After all that inspiration I decided to take an online Craftsy course by Brett Bara, Design Your Own Handbag. I had been feeling in a bit of a rut with my own bag creations/designs and thought maybe I could learn a new thing or two here. Well, I did! First, I learned how to make and install a recessed zipper. Second, I used a canvas interlining for the first time. I also installed an open cell phone pocket on the back exterior using a zipper technique I already knew of just leaving out the zipper. Love, love, love how everything turned out! Here's my new Ghastly bag :) I can see more of these in the future, it is the perfect size! I'm thinking spring already, golf cart theme! Happy Halloween everyone!
