The Wrap up

From the minute I had the concept for this bag I just KNEW it was going to be amazing. The muted but moody floral paired with the latté Litchi leather and gold hardware was the perfect combo to create an incredible look. 

If you have never attempted a bag before, I highly recommend giving this one a go, especially as it is a FREE pattern! 

I made mine from vinyl, but you can also make it from other woven materials. Mixing and matches patterns and solids really gives you endless options on how cool this bag can be. 

The construction is fairly simple and I love that I can customise the zips I want to put in it as well. All in all I am so happy with how this one turned out!
