Handmade gifts, the sort of making that has me crippled with second guesses! See the bag I made for my dear friend for her birthday!

Oh my goodness, that is just so beautiful and unique and fabulous. You outdid yourself. Gorgeous!
Thank you, Lynne!
The bag is beautiful! Do you have a pattern? Or can you give sizes? This would be a great around town bag.
Hi, Trish! I made it all up as I went just going off of what I know of bag construction. I don’t even remember the sizes I cut. I want to say the unfinished panel for the front was 9×10 but I’m not entirely certain.
I’ve done that before! You’ve given me a starting point & some inspiration. Thank you!
Can you tell me how/when you added the D-rings? TIA
Yes. I attached them with tabs I made with the same fabric I used to make the straps. They were sewn onto the exterior of the bag after the exterior was completed, and before I closed up the lining. :)
