Matching bag

I had some scraps of silk left over from the dress and skirt, and some lining left over from the skirt, so I decided to make a handbag to match, for when I wore the dress to to my Dad’s wedding.


I just kind of made it up as I went along, making sure there was room for the essentials! I bought a clasp from C & Fabrics and cut the fabric to size.


I sewed a half pouch in both fabrics, and rolled the seams in, then stitched them up.


Next,  I handstiched the clasp onto the pouch, and made a strap out of more silk scraps.


I was careful to make sure the fabric stopped the clasp opening too far, so as to not lose items in the bag when I opened it!


There is the finished product! I am rather happy with that – and it worked really well at my Dad’s wedding!
