Mama’s got a brand new bag

With the changing of the seasons comes the need for the changing of purses.  So long, favorite bag of summer.  Hello, new chilly-weather favorite.

Mama's Bag

It’s “Mama’s Bag” from Amanda Soule’s Handmade Home.  She recommends using an upholstery-weight fabric for the extra stiffness, and I found some amazing/hideous old curtains at the Salvation Army.  I made the handles out of the curtain fabric and used an old bedsheet for the lining.  I didn’t get the pleats quite right, but I’m pleased with it anyway.
