Size: Height 15cm x Width 24cm x Depth 5cm
I used my beloved navy checker fabrics for this sling bag. As it's a special gift for Catherine 21 years old celebration, I spent at least 300% times of effort to make this bag. And also a special symbol of "21" patchwork is placed on the cover.
To emphasis the touch of "handmade", I hand embroidery the decoration line of the "21" symbol and the external zipper. It has created a very zakka look.
To ensure the durability, canvas is used for the body. However, this canvas looks a little bit plain. I think adding the colour edge will outshine the shape and catch people's eye balls.
The whole body is so thick and I am forced to do 80% hand stitch to complete it. Yeah, my fingers feel numb now, haha.
Well, I am quite satisfied with the outcome. This bag looks very solid and durable. Hope Catherine will like it.
