Christmas craftyness :)

Didn't know what to get one particular friend of mine for xmas, as she happens to have everything, however she is a bit of a handbag fiend, so I russled this up for her. (Hope she doesn't secretly read this blog lol!) Hopefully it'll go down well. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out given that I'd never made a bag before and I decided to use satin which is horrific to work with.

It's just a basic envelope style clutch bag (with added wrist strap, cos I personally think clutch bags you literaly have to clutch are the most annoying thing in the world). The exterior is chinese satin and it has a black velvet interior. Thanks to he magic of fusable interfacing the satin isnt going to fray everywhere, woop woop!

Anyway, as always comments appreciated :) Merry Christmas everyone xxx
