It took much more longer time than I had expected. It was hard sewing the binding inside the bag, and it was hard sewing the handles on to the purse. And when all this was done I added a little pocket inside the bag. Had to sew it on by hand, and now my arm hurts. Both front pieces are sewed by hand. It was a fun technique Yoko Saito learned us. I am used to do handpiecing and making templates, but this time we just had to cut not even stripes of the fabric, and just sew log cabin blocks with no thinking how it would look like. Then all blocks was layed on a template and appliqued together. All quilting on the fronts are done by hand. Luckily the sides are machinequilted. So you see there is a lot of work by hand on this bag.
Now I have a new purse. And I love it.
