The shorter one

The ideas woman has been encouraging me to make a shorter styled handbag for quite a while now........ and I finally got around to it!

It's the same design as this one but with a shorter bottom section.
I used a panel of lovely Hollabee fabric that I bought way back in June last year, teamed with some thrifted brown velour type fabric, so it's lovely and soft and snuggly. The perfect winter handbag.

The interior is a vintage pilowcase that I received from Cass. The muted colours work perfectly together.

I think there'll be more of these to come....

It's beautiful! I love the autumny/wintery fabrics! I quite like the shorter bags myself so this is a great idea.
