This handbag is very simple yet elegant. It is made from heather grey/muted moss coloured suede with a contrasting floral stripe down the middle. The suede is stabilized to make the bag stand upright on its own. It is fully lined in dark green on the inside with two suede pockets and closes with a zip. The handles are kept short, so you may carry the bag ladylike over your arm! Embellished with taupe buttons and my signature little gold heart. My hubby declared this bag to be his favourite! When handling/sewing suede keep in mind that you can only iron the reverse side, and only on a silk setting. While sewing, the suede fabric doesn't move smoothly, yet the reverse side is quite slippery, so sew s-l-o-w-l-y. The handles on this bag were particularly tricky to sew, and I had to hold down and gently push the fabric strips along. I was so glad when they were done! Sometimes I wish I had four hands!
