MC is a professional flute player and she's worked with the same teacher for years. Her teacher loved MC's bag and often commented on how she's love to have one. MC asked me to make one for her so we chose the fabrics and away I went. A year later, I sailed through this pattern! It was really awesome to see how much I've grown and how much more skill I have now. I remember telling MC when I gave her the first purse "if I can make this, I can make anything!". And it really was true-- that project was the confidence booster I needed to get out there and try it. I mean, what was the worst that could happen? I'd already failed and survived.
I really hope MC's teacher likes her new bag. It was a great collaboration with MC!
I love the purples and patterns MC chose! I especially love how the diamonds tie the purples and greens together!
I added a zippered pocket to the bag for little things that could get lost in the bottom of the bag (don't you hate it when that happens!?)
What was the hardest thing you've ever tried? Did it get easier with time?
