After completing my first Huccaby design earlier this year, I wanted to start making another almost straight away. I had some beautiful Japanese-inspired fabric by Makower that I knew would be perfect for this satchel, so started thinking about the complimentary fabric I was going to use for the lining…. so many choices…..!
Because the main fabric has a delicate design, I wanted to use whatever complimentary fabric I chose for the buckle tabs as well; this would give it a bit of impact and bring out some of the colour in the main fabric. Having made the first satchel from a very strong colour and busier pattern, I wanted this one to look very different. I had kept hold of this particular fabric for a while, wanting to use it for just the right project and this was it!
So here are my fabric choices for this project…… more update photos to follow soon.
