The handles and length of fabric which I bought to finish off the MÃ¤rta Embroidered Bag have arrived! I bought the fabric on a bit of a whim, really, after having searched for months to find something, I think frustration took over and I just chose something. It’s a cute little print, though, and I think it will work for the lining. It’s not as classic as the outside of the bag will hopefully remain for some time, but it’s cute enough for the ‘private’ inside of the bag, which I’ll catch glimpses of whilst I look for my phone or lost keys.
I’m not overjoyed with the handles. They are an absolutely perfect shape and exactly what I was looking for in that respect, but they are plastic, whereas I would really have loved to find actual wooden handles to grace such a beautiful project. Hopefully the handles will not look out of place when the bag is finally finished, though I can always change them in the future if I find something perfect.
