The fabric I used was black cord salvaged from a pair of my dads trousers that were destined for a charity shop. I used the fabric from half of one leg (so still have loads left for future projects!)
Inspired by these bags on Sew Mama Sew I sized my bag up (based on what I needed it to carry) and made the bag using two trapeziums of cord, two of interfacing and two of floral lining fabric. I used 1m of thin silver chain for the handle and two strips of lace (one for each side) to decorate the bag. The bag is closed with a magnetic clasp and a decorative button on the outside. I am really pleased with the result which took me a morning to make (due to the necessity to hand stitch the lace into place!). So what do you think? Worthy of the palace?
