Hello , Happy Friendship day to all my bloggy pals... Last week my parents and my husband jointly gifted me a sewing machine for my upcoming birthday.  I always wanted a small handbag/ pouch to carry my ipad and books when I go out. So I was very happy to sew my first project of making a mini handbag. Here are some pics..

 I bought the red fabric from walmart. I took measurement such that my books and ipad fits inside and sewed the bag using the sewing machine. I made a crochet handle.

For the lining of the bag I used jute cloth from a rice bag. I removed the zip from my old dress and fixed upon this. 

For decoration I stitched  lace and pearls on the front side of the bag.
