The New Yorker – New sample

Quilted-CoralSQThis beauty is a new sample for The New Yorker handbag pattern View B. The overall coral color of the fabric is accented with lighter colors for a lovely Spring look. The fabric is from a Coldwater Creek jacket that I up-cycled. The lining is a 1.5 wide striped silk in complimentary colors that is from an up-cycled shirt. After auditioning several handle options I decided the perfect look for this handbag was a woven corded handle. I made it using the Diva Cord Maker.
