Well, here at last, we have the completed handbags!
The team at The Henry Moore Foundation put a lot of careful thought into the combinations of fabrics and haberdashery they chose from my selection.
I took two sample bags with that boho striped top and the sooo smart tweedy top,
lots of different fabric top bands,
four colours of leather handle and
the lovely vintage buttons I recently acquired for this project.
Lots of mixing and matching ensued until a consensus was reached and these five designs were chosen. Which is your favourite?
