我的“处女”元宝包 My 1st machine-sew Yuan Bao Bag

This is my 1st handbag using sewing machine. I was attracted by Artchala's Yuan Bao Bag few months ago and that was the first time I got to know about handmade bag. I always wanted to do this bag, but was hesitating to do so with using hand sew, not sure will hand stitches can last long? And also the UPH (Unit per output) will be pretty slow.... Tried to find many excuses for myself and finally when I reached the "cannot tahan" level, then I took out my SmartLady and started to sew...Well, I am quite satisfied with the output in overall, I never expect myself can do a bag le.... for a beginner like me, first time then can have this result should be quite OK liao, isn't it? Hehe.... masuk bakul angkat sendiri... ok, let the photos speak on bahalf now...
In fact this bag is the combination of machine and hand sew, why I say so? because during I was sewing the handle, my sewing machine started to boycott me... I took a few hours to complete the handle, no matter how I scold or beat the machine, it still didn't work.... so no choice I have to back to the hand sew method to combine the outer and inner bag.I chose the Little Animals which just bought from Anita whom is an expert in making Quilt, matching up with the red and white polka dot, isn't it look nice? I plan to do another one by using cotton linen... for inner part, I used the sweet pinky strawberries.

梦寐以求的元宝包终于都完成了。早在一接触手作看到大师Artchala 家的元宝包,我就爱上了。心里就敲定了也要做个来看看。人,真的必须有梦想,那才能朝着梦想前进。
