Sophia's bag

Another bag finish. This was sewn for Sophia's 21st birthday. A recycled paired of her jeans. Was made "with love" for a future Doctor, daughter of a best friend, Magaly.

The lining was chosen by her mom. Couldn't resist to sew a band to highlight it on the outside.

Was very pleased with the inside pocket, has a larger and shorter one, so she can have a place for her sunglasses and cell phone. Luckily I found large snap buttons, do you remember I was using small ones for almost everything?

Her boyfriend Gian, the real mastermind behind the present, wanted me to add zippers to the pockets, I thought that wouldn't be nice, would spoil the look, and frankly was way too difficult lol

To make up for it did a small case for her make up or pencils. Despite the disastrous attach of the zipper and lining, she was happy with it. Apparently didn't notice the mistake.

Well, another cool bag. Have more waiting to be done...

Happy stitching!

What a nice gift. You're getting very creative with those bags. Zippers are always a bear. Your little accessory looks great. We always notice our own mistakes, and often no one else does.
