I couldn't find any that were big enough.
Yes, I was looking for huge.
Since I couldn't find one I thought would work, I resorted to a gigantic fabric covered button.
I think it looks pretty good! I don't even mind that there are no threaded holes on the front. I kinda thought the threaded hole look would look better than a clean and flat button.
I'm quite happy with it. And so is my friend.
I also made another bag last week. It was a pretty simple bag and came together in probably about two hours - if I had worked steady on it that is. Kids don't let you work steady on anything.
It is the Phoebe Bag from Rebeka Lambert. Simple. Clean. And cute.
I scored some white linen at the thrift store and thought it was perfect for this bag. However, it was too white so I tea dyed it tan colour. The dying process was not uniform, but I think that adds to the character of self dyed fabric.
The striped fabric is a Henry Glass print and a solid that simply just matched.
One lone pocket on the inside for keys and a phone, or pens and paper, or if you're like me,candies and chocolate balls
Really, I don't carry those items for me. They're for the princess who always asks for mooy aka more.
