I really have no idea what got into me making this little bag. It just came to me while I was playing around with the diamond stamp. It seemed that a little bag of blue velvet would go very nicely with the diamond trim.
I had a free afternoon after my tutoring was cancelled so I sat down at my machine and finished it up.
It didn't turn out too badly even though I didn't use a pattern for the construction. I'm great at free form arty things but not so great at figuring out how things go together.
The next photo gives you an idea of the size, perfect for a night out or a special dinner when you might only want your phone and some small items. Not likely something I'd be doing but I'm sure I'll find someone to pass it onto.
I used a magnetic closure for the first time. I really love them on a bag but don't really love adding them. As they say, one learns by doing and next time I would use a larger magnet. With the layers of velvet and the lining in between, it's not as strong as I'd like it to be.
