New Shorts and Bag

I recently made myself this cute little Charlie Bag from Very Purple Person's tutorial. You can make it reversible but I didn't I installed a magnet clasp and placed leather on the bottom so the white would not get dirty. I needed a slouchy market bag to go thrifting with. I usually stay away from white but I like the fact that it matches everything. I also made the white shorts. They are from Colette's Iris shorts pattern.  I love this pattern and I like the way they fit on me.
Back to sewing!

I love the bag! Did you find it difficult sewing through leather?

It is completely different. You use a leather needle, make your stitch width longer and it helps to have a teflon sewing foot. I like to sew with lamb skin because it is also thinner, which makes it easier to sew.
