I had made (and forgotten) similar versions of this bag years ago ... 2009 to be exact! So imagine my surprise when a customer requested for an almost exact version of the bag. I have to admit feeling chuffed that a customer would take the time to go through my blog to find what she wanted 💃💃💃. To be honest though, it has been on my mind to go through my old designs and pick out pieces that I will revamp, but of course I never got round to doing it. So this request is kinda double special because it forced me to drop everything I was doing to do just that. I had to go through my archives, both physically (old sketch books and jotters for measurements) and electronically (old flash drives for pictures) to get the exact details about the bag. My methods, tools and machines have
changed improved drastically from 2009 so I was quite eager to see what a 'newer version' of the exact piece would be. I tried to stay true to the original design and even though I made some slight changes to it, I made a conscious effort to make sure that the changes will not affect the overall look of the bag when finished, I think I nailed it and the customer thought so too hehehehe. See older versions here and here and let me know what you think.
Like the first 2 versions, this bag is very roomy and the lined interior has 2 phone pouches, a zipped compartment and an extra pouch as well as a top zip to further make sure contents are safe.
