The Wedding Of The Year is fast approaching. I am burning the midnight oil finishing up a few last minute projects. I have 2 pairs of pants to hem still and quite a bit of packing to do. However, I can now see the light at the end of the tunnel!
Inspired buy a wedding I was at once, I decided to make the bridesmaids little handbags for the wedding. It wasn't until I was knee deep in fabric circles that I realized there are 7 bridesmaids! I must have been having a small stroke at the time I made this decision. Fortunately it was a very easy sewing project compared to the dresses. I finished up the bags yesterday! WooHoo!
I made these 7 bags out of the leftover dress fabric and lining. I added twisted rope handles, one on each side of the bag. I didn't get real fancy with the embellishments. I added a bow and a melted ribbon rose for each bag.
Emma decided that the bags also served a dual purpose of acting as a nightcap when opened and inverted.
