Second Peacock Bag
When I cut the strips for the front of the first peacock bag I cut two of each as the directions indicated, forgetting that I wanted the back plain with a pocket on the outside. That meant I had cut fabric for two fronts and this second bag is the result of that. I used green fabric instead of black on the back.
Now I have to decide what handles to use. These are silver and leather from an old purse.
These are plastic and webbing also from an old bag. I think they look too heavy and too sporty for this fabric.
These are a pair of clear plastic handles, more like what is called for in the pattern except those are cloth. I could also make fabric handles...
So many decisions even with a simple item like a bag.
