Wooo Hooo…exciting news! Joan Hawley made a post to her blog yesterday featuring my Miranda bag!Â I feel like such a proud mamma having my baby in the spotlight!Â Click here if you’d like to take a look.
Cinching:Â I recently received a request for clarification on how I applied the tabs for the “cinched” effect on my Miranda bag.
Here’s the scoop:
You attach the tabs for the swivel clips in the same manner as you attach the tabs for the purchased handles (instructions for that are in the pattern, I believe).Â Only instead of placing the tabs on the outside (as for the handles) you’ll place the tabs on the inside.Â You’ll want to use a matching/coordinating thread so the stitching will be discreet & not very noticeable.
Joan (Joan Hawley, the Miranda Bag pattern designer) shows/describes this a little better on her blog in these two entries:
Hope that helps.
