A few days ago, at 4:20 A.M., my sub-conscious Night Shift designed a new handbag.
I was asleep, but aware that there was a lot of work going on. Do you ever do that?
Softly but busily, my central processing unit ran through how to make these handles, how to pleat and attach the top trim, how to sew the difficult inside corners at the bottom. The only time it bothered me was when I tried to enter the debate on the need for an outside pocket...then I realized "I" wasn't needed and went back to sleep.
When I woke up, I was trained and ready to go. After a quick breakfast and shower, I sat down and just sewed it up. No thinking, no fiddling. Just cut and sew. You gotta love a brain that will do that for you.
Two roomy pockets inside. Love the piping on this bag pocket - it gives the bag stability, besides looking so finished when you open the bag to look for something.
Thanks, Night Shift. You made that part easy. The hard part is figuring out how to get them in front of customers without schlepping them down to Market. Any ideas?
And, does anyone know where I can get more of that Houles Paris trim?
I simply adore those opposing diagonals!
