Here is a sneak preview of my "Totally 80's" striped handbag:
The top edge is a reverse sc. I will post more photos after I've (gulp) sewed in the lining and zipper, and completed the strap. Don't hold your breath, as it may take me awhile. I'm NOT the best at using my sewing machine. If you can picture lots of cussing and ripping out seams, then you get the picture!
