Faux leather is a great fabric. It doesn’t need a lot of preparation for things made with it to look good. If you’re making a bag from a woven fabric, it’s crucial to stiffen it with the right interfacing. But in country where I live – Poland, there isn’t much of a choice when it comes to products for hobbyists. That’s why sewing with faux leather makes it easier.
I was wearing this bag a few times now, and I must admit that it’s great. The size is perfect to match summer outfits, and the design is quite universal. I stiffened the bottom of the bag hard, so the bag keeps its shape well. The strap is adjustable – faux leather combined with webbing is one of my methods for reducing number of layers 🙂 Inside, as usual, cotton lining.
