I adore the fabric. If you look in the background of the picture you can see the lining, cream with orange blossoms.
Love it!!!

This is just one of the two bags Stephanie is making! They both already look amazing! Can’t wait to see the lining pictures too!

Here are my pictures of the outer shell. I am working with leather (lamb skin) which is new adventure for me! Lamb skin is a good leather to start with because it is so thin. I did use interfacing. Even though you should not iron leather, I did iron the interfacing onto it with a cloth covering the leather to protect it.

There is another way!Take a long piece of floss and zig zag stitch over the floss. (Make sure the floss is not sewn.) When you are finished sewing a zig zag stitch over the floss for the length of the project pull the fabric and it will gather for you just like a shower curtain on a straight rod. Best Wishes! Thank you for sharing your pictures with the Flickr: Sew Spoiled Cabrio Tote Sew Along group.
