This was my first time making a box bag though I've wanted to make one for a long time! The tutorial I used was really good - I even modified the measurements and it turned out! Woohoo! I had another pattern for a similar box bag but it wasn't lined. I'd make a non-lined one for myself but this is for a stranger who will no doubt judge me and my sewing 'skillz'. Fingers crossed I've done a good job!
This was also my first time making a covered fabric button!! I wanted a fun zipper pull for the bag so I attached the handmade button to a clip key chain ring thingy but it is not a great zipper pull [hahaha - it's a "SHIT" zipper pull!]. All in all it was a fun project to make and came together quite quickly. The embroidery on the other side was done a week or so ago which helped me complete this fairly quickly tonight. Look to my Flickr photostream next week for the final reveal of the goodies I've made for my secret partner.
