That is very cute! How are the straps attached?

Lovely! I like the choice of interior fabrics, too.

Lynn WA said...
The straps are attached rather ingeniously! A placement square is embroidered on the bag, then the strap is added and sewn down in a square with an X through it - several times so it's very strong. Then the fabric covering is placed over the strap and embroidered. Everything is firmly held in place.

I went to the link to look for the Kit you bought, but she's not got anymore. What all comes with it? Every time I look in the gallery this is the bag I drool over! :-)

Very pretty. I seen this bag/embroidery completed on Sewing with Nancy. Nancy had as a guest Eileen Roche who showed how this bag was machine embroidered and put together. You did a great job.

HDWen, I updated the link to the handbag software, so check it out! They still have it, just on a different page.

Such an interesting approach to machine embroidery. I've been watching this on Sewing With Nancy. It's so cool to see your version!

This is one BEAUTIFUL bag - I bet you would have to pay one heck of a lot for it in any upscale store- I am totally in love with it.

Amazing bag -- looks very expensive. Did you use anything in the handles or are they just 2 layers of fabric.
8/12/12 7:46 PM
Lynn WA said...
SheBear0320 - I cut the straps 2" wide and used a medium weight iron on interfacing for the entire width. I folded it in 1/2" on each side; then I cut a 1" strip (yellow), interfaced it as well, folded it 1/4" on each side, laid it over the center of the wider strap and seweed along each edge. It was easy to do and the best part was no turning a tube yet all the raw edges are enclosed.
