Nans Bag

My Creation

This was just a simple bag for my nan, as in all good tradition I didnt use a pattern and had to do a little "on the fly" design changes.

Its fully lined with a large pocket on the inside and as you can see by the pictures I hate making straps, so i cheated. I made the first strap and then decided if i threaded the strap through the metal D clips and then fixed it to the other side then the weight of the bag close's it when you pick it up.

So its not really a design style its just i hate making straps !

My nan likes it so thats the main thing and the experience has taught me a few things I didnt know.
