New Miniatures: In Miniature Style II

Just because a pattern looks one way, doesn't mean that is the only way to use it.

Experimenting, I took the tote bag pattern from my book, IN MINIATURE STYLE II (eBook and print), and decided to make a shoulder bag instead.

By changing the shape slightly and adding rings for the handles and for the front decoration, plus a new "fabric," I had a completely different bag--or two. I used two different fabrics, a brown faux leather and a fun red pebble paper. Stay tuned for more styles!
