handmade with a smile
Recently while making a messenger style bag, I found myself musing on how I didn’t realize I had made the strap about a foot too long. I know I measure all the pieces more than once. Perhaps I was miscalculating how long a cross-body strap would need to be to fit a woman. Once I had put everything together and trying it on, I was shocked. I ended up cutting out a foot, ripping a few seams, and putting it all back together. I guess I should be happy was cutting fabric out and not having to add more. Either way, this has turned out to be my favorite bag to date.
