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.
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.
