Bag Making is So Much Fun

Happy Sunday to everybody!

I love this bamboo handlers. It was so fun to hand sew the fabric part that holds them! For that I used transparent thread because I wanted it to be an invisible seam!
The outer fabric is a quilting cotton fabric "Essentials" by Wilmington Prints. The inside is a cotton fabric I bought in a fabric store which I immediately loved! It's so charming!

Of course when we decided to buy it I said: "I'm gonna make a Kindle cover for her! You know... it's better to keep it safe!" We are both a little clumsy. Just a tiny little bit! 

Since she loves science and physics I picked this lovely fabric months ago for her, along with the numbers fabric. They match so well together!! The science fabric is "It's Elementary" by and the another one... no idea sorry!

I went for a magnetic snap to close it covering the upper sewing with a nice star shaped button. Thanks goodness I love buttons and have always a bunch between my supplies!
