We are so pleased to announce that since the launch of our new charity sewing pattern, The Cwtsh Bag, a little over two weeks ago, we have collectively raised over £500 for Black Minds Matter UK! Thank you so much for your support! If you've not already bought your copy of the sewing pattern, you'll find it here on our website: The Cwtsh Bag Charity PDF Sewing Pattern. £8.25 from every sale will be going to Black Minds Matter UK.
And, if you've not already picked up all your bits and bobs, head over to Sew Hot. They've put together an interfacing kit and a hardware kit for The Cwtsh Bag. Find the kits here: http://bit.ly/CwtshBagSewHot
Need a little more inspiration for your sew? Scroll down for some of the fab Cwtsh Bags made by our testers!
Many of our testers were inspired by the outdoors, with nature-inspired prints like Isabelle's Butterflies (fabric from Ruby Star Society):
And Varna's pretty dragonflies:
As well as more botanical prints, such as Susan's leaves blowing in the wind:
And Rebecca's gorgeous garden:
We saw a bouquet of bags from our testers, too, ranging from bright and bold flowers by Ingrid:
Through to more delicate floral makes by Lynne:
And by Cheryl, whose sweet floral Cwtsh Bag makes us smile very time we see it! Do you see the happy face inside too?
Lynn used a fun nautical print for her sweet Cwtsh Bag:
The Cwtsh Bag also looks super made in solid fabrics, such as Alice's huggable-looking Harris Tweed (it has pandas inside!):
Or, Evey's super soft suede-feel fabric:
And, if you fancy having a go at The Cwtsh Bag with leather, here's Desra's version for inspiration:
We hope this has given you a lot of super ideas ready for Mrs H's video tutorial on The Creative Craft Show Live this Sunday 6th September at 3pm! We're looking forward to seeing all your makes! Don't forget to tag us on Facebook or Instagram as @sewingpatternsbymrsh so we can celebrate your sews with you!
