It only took me a couple of hours. Mum chose the fabric and requsted a bag, I just had to find a cream lining and pink fabric for the handles. I made sure I put my label in and told her to make sure dhe tells everyone it was hugely expensive and completely unique.[/img]

Looks fab. You could make them with screen printed fabric from Penny with trendy slogans

Oh, I like those, CKR! I do like tweed a lot, but a lot of the stuff it's made up into isn't my thing at all I was thinking of making a tweed yoga mat bag - I thought it would be quite weatherproof if I got a good tweed.

That's lovely, Pea. And that is from someone who doesn't even own a handbag! Maybe I'm turning into a normal woman...
