This is what the bag looks like when finished.
Here's the link to it. She calls it a purse as that's what American people call their handbags. :)
You wouldn't have to use a machine if you had lots of patience or made your bag quite small.
The bag is lined and very professional looking when it's finished.
It's very easy to follow her instructions but younger sewers might need adult help as you need to use an iron for making the straps.
I made one for a present for my friend and she loved it. Why not have a go!
