Madam Butterfly

This has to be my last bag for June MAAD. My 16th bag. I feel a little exhausted. I had a good run with this denim.

This is another huge bag. When I was sewing it on the sewing machine, I had to literally hug the bag. Big bags are becoming a problem for me to transport. My luggage finally died. Last year a taxi ran into my luggage and I thought it survived. Turned out it was just hanging on. Last month the handle broke and I'm still searching for a replacement. Hmm, let's see. It has to be light, yet sturdy and large enough to contain all my bags. It's going to take me all of the Great Singapore Sale to find one.

I used piping and the handle is made of very sturdy twill. Yes, I made my girl crouch for this picture.
I gave myself a little challenge for this bag. Recessed zipper!
And still stuck on this eastern charm theme - Butterfly applique with blanket stitches. Isn't the Japanese fabric gorgeous? It has golden streaks!

I hope you have a great day and I'll see you next week.
