I make hundreds of handbags every year.   I enjoy piecing fabrics together to make new fabrics.   I usually use decorator fabrics as they are designed for wear.   I buy yardage to use for the handles and as a theme in the bags, but I usually piece together fabrics from decorator sample books for the body of the bags.   That way I get to play with combining lots of fabrics.   I also save these beautiful fabrics from the landfill.
