After years of promising myself a new evening bag I finally got round to making one.
I had read an article about making a bow shaped bag which I decided to tackle.
The bag is made using two rectangles for the outer fabric plus two for the lining plus a strip to make the buckle.
I used a concealed zip as I didn’t want it to show.
After adding interfacing to the two outer pieces they were each added to the zip – so that the zip was in the middle. Then the lining pieces were added to the zip using a normal zip foot.
I added a wrist strap using beaded cord, which was sewn into one of the edges of the outer.
