Remember this bag..?? I had a lot of trouble finding a suitable name for it on my own, so I enlisted the help of my blogger friends, who were kind enough to suggest beautiful and exotic names... however, it was not meant to be..
I finally named it D'Lavender after its first buyer.
I have made 3 more D'Lavenders recently, 2 using Moda fabrics and 1 in Lecien.
I find the whole process of cutting to assembling D'lavender rather easy and smooth sailing. This is I suppose mainly due to the fact that this bag has less parts as compared to some other patterns I have worked with.
I use fusible interface on both the main and the lining fabrics, including the handle and the snap button closure. This is the first pattern to use this much of interface. I usually use interface on either the main or the lining fabric only. But since I use soft cotton inside out for the D'Lavender bag, I have to make sure it is properly interfaced to ensure sturdier shape.
My only stress point has to be while attaching the magnetic snap closure. I worry I'll end up with crooked and uneven position of the snap button. Thus making me check and re-check before I punch the hole to place the snap button.
Size: 33cm (w) x 23cm (h)
Handle length: about 50cm
1 inside pocket
magnetic snap for closure
