Hand Bag

Yesterday I mentioned on Facebook that I made a new handbag in the afternoon. It’s really more of a briefcase. I had this in mind since I first got here. I was inspired by the beautiful (maradadi) kitenge fabrics available here in Tanzania and by the need to have something to carry my book back and forth to class. After considerable thought as to how to put it together and creating a pattern. I resolved to try to finish it with a borrowed sewing machine on Sunday afternoon. Here is my friend, Sophia modeling the bag.

I am already thinking of an easier pattern for a simple book bag.
