4 broken needles later……. A handmade velvet handbag

4 broken needles later……. A handmade velvet handbag

I have had the idea for the construction and design for this bag in mind for a while. I thought it would be the perfect use of this remnant of very thick velvet. What I didn’t anticipate was the difficulty my sewing machine would have in sticthing thrugh any layers of this. I broke 4 needles trying to finish it. My sewing machine and I fell out big time! In the end I glued the band on the top but felt I had stitched enough to keep everything secure. I guess only time will tell. I loved shoosing the lining fabric. I think the lining just finishes any project beautifully and is very important.
