Margaret Bag #2
Well, here's my second go at the Margaret Bag. I did the cross-over version with the longer strap this time. The fabric is gorgeous! I pointed out a few random fabrics that I really liked to Paige, and out of them she chose this one. I think I ended up buying the other fabrics anyway.
I did the top-stitching with matching thread this time, rather than contrasting, as the fabric is rather busy. So red on red and black on black. When I top-stitched the outside of the bag, I used black on the bobbin so it was still red on red and black on black.
Paige also chose the button out of my stash. I like the choice she made, although I think it would have been better if it was larger.
