  • So....a lovely lady friend of mine had a little bag from me and loved it so much she asked if I could make her one in the same design but out of some Cath Kidston oilcloth.

    I of course said yes, which led to a whole world of sewing I'd never encountered. Oilcloth....eek! Of course I had to practise by sewing a little pouch.

    Generally I didn't find it too difficult as long as I remembered that I couldn't pin it, iron it or feed it through the machine very easily....good....great.

  • So, this lovely lady who asked me to make her a bag....I know her from Christian chat and her chat name is Bubbles....so the obvious name for this little baggy is the Bubbles bag :)

    We had a chat and she opted for a two handled tote bag. It needed to have a zip closure and she wanted it in a gorgeous chocolate brown. Other than that (and her loving turquoise) the choice was mine. Seeing as I personally love pockets....I added three. One zipped, two slip. I also added a key hookey thing for her to clip her keys onto so they're easily accessible.

    Here is the final bag.

  • So, remember the bow pleat bag?

    I made one, editted it, made another, editted it again and finally made another and then I was happy with it?

  • I've got a friend. She's a lovely friend. She's very talented and makes jewellery that I drool over frequently!

    She asked me to make her a bag. A messenger bag with many pockets, so I did. She said I could photo it along the way for a pattern so I thought rather than write yet ANOTHER messenger bag pattern I'd just write it up as a tutorial for you to save you all some pennies!

    It's quite a long tutorial so I'll be splitting it up this week. Here's the finished bag.

  • and have done with it.

    That's my favourite thoughts towards bags lately. I'm so over hanging onto a bag to make sure it doesn't fall off my shoulder. Oh, and I love buttons. Useful buttons this time. (I also love decorative buttons, but useful is....well, useful).

    So I made a new pattern during a crazy mid February sunny patch. Really, sun in February? It's put me all out of kilter!

    Anyway, so here's my latest pattern, which is available from today in the shop.
