Okay on with Daryl's Drive I feel so honored and special to have this bag named after ME! It's a thrill!!! But it's also a beautiful style bag too!
Christine, of Chris W Designs, designed this bag as one of her Easy Street pattern collection of bags that are designed to be easier and faster to sew, but still have some great design elements too. Like I love the hidden phone pocket on this bag, and the shape of the bag too.
Since this bag was named after me, I wanted a fabric that would say "me", so I used a fabric that was designed by Kathy Hall called Celebracion by Andover Fabrics. It is designed from the Museum of New Mexico's Museum of International Folk Art (located in Santa Fe). The fabric is bright, colorful, it's a large floral print and all of that says "me"!!! Lol!!!
I hope you like the Daryl's Drive as much as I do. And hop over to see all the testers versions too. Plus you can receive 20% off the price of the Daryl's Drive pattern right now when you sign up for Christine's Newsletter.
|There are a couple of ways to add the straps. One is like this with rivets (although I cheated and used hot fix silver dots to look like faux rivets, lol!!!) or with a hardware I didn't have, but you can see some of the testers and Christine's strap hardware here.|
|The side of the bag can be pushed in like this or pushed out for a puffier look. On the back side of the purse behind the upper band is a hidden cell phone pocket, which makes it so easy to grab your phone. Don't have a phone (like me), then put your keys in this pocket instead like I do. You can see the pocket in some of the testers versions.|
|Inside there are slip pockets and a zippered pocket.|
|This is the fabric I used.|
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season!
