The Heidi Bag

The Heidi Bag is the latest pattern I've tested for http://www.ithinksew.com/.  It was an easy pattern to follow, but in the end I didn't feel it was a bag I would want to use for myself.  In my opinion it has a younger "cute" look.  Maybe if I added a larger, more elegant flower, it would change the look.  Anyway... this may be one I will use for the school auction.  Here it is...

I used a heavy interfacing to help give shape to the bag body.

The outside fabric feels like a wool blend. I'm really not sure, though, since I found it at the thrift store.

It has a long handle...

The "flower" was my first attempt, and I kind of did my own thing.  I wanted to use this red and white button to match the lining, so kind of changed from what the pattern showed.

...the lining.
