Margo Handbag by Lazy Girl

I fell in love with this bag when I first saw it here. However, I was quite in daunted with the zipper as I have never been successful in sewing a zipper to a bag by machine! I hesitated in purchasing the pattern for a few months. lol! Anyway, there was a sales over here and .......

I used fabrics from my stash and am pleased to say that sewing the zip was rather easy - and the instruction was very clear! I did not use any batting even though the pattern called for fusible batting - the main fabric (the large grey circular design is actually meant for curtains and therefore stiff enough to 'sit' well.) I used a fusible fabric interfacing (bought from Corine at the Quilt retreat in Penang last year) for the rest of the bag and it give enough support to the overall bag! The bag has many pockets inside which make me love it more! I'm very pleased with this bag! More to come, later....*smile*

Inside of the bag with my personal things. *grin*

Thank you for visiting!
