I gave this sweet messenger bag to Lulu's friend for her birthday. Her mum asked me about a year ago and finally I made it. I didn't have much time to make it, result not the right proportions! The front is so pretty in true life so it's a shame. Carlotta's 8 and doesn't mind (probably didn't notice) so that's good. To make the front lap I used antique linens, vintage embroidered fabrics, antique laces and doilies and then I finished it off with a pretty butterfly. Oh and there's random embroidery here and there.
