a number of *first*s

managed to squeeze in some time for handmade pleasures over the weekend.
it's been quite a while since i last laid my hands over the sewing machine...
my fingers were getting a bit "unsettling"....

this is the first time i tried the following:
* using linen canvas as the body of the tote ~ sturdy!!
* using a large piece of lace for the body
and...

* making a "non-flat-bag", 
i.e. this one has a couple inches wide bottom ~ more volume ~ can hold more stuff
and...

* hand-sewed a double-sided handle ~ for added firmness
(it's actually quite painful to the fingertips when sewing,
cos the material of the handle is quite thick)
and...


* lastly, a hand-stamped and hand-written little label sewed to the inside of the bag,
which says :: limited edition by motu 
(hahahaha... so silly...)

i will see if my mom will take this "latest~limited~edition~collection~from~motu"  
hahaha
