  • A big hello from Reece at Happy Okapi! I'm so excited Samantha has asked me over for this Sew-Along.  If you've joined me in a Sew-Along before, you're probably familiar with my organization style, but I'll lay it anyway for everyone.
    • Day 1 (that's today!) I like to do all the prep work, including fabric selection, gathering of supplies, cutting, and fusing/basting.
    • Day 2 Here is where I prefer to get all the fussy work out of the way, like pockets, piping, and zippers if possible. 
    • Day 3 Final assembly!! We take all our pieces and put them together to make our gorgeous bags!! (The extra exclamation marks are because this is my favourite part, and I get soooo excited about it)

  • Hi lovelies,

    I'm so excited to share with you something new for the blog this month....the Companion Carpet bag sew along!

    I've been a fan of Reece from Happy Okapi for a while now, and I've been blown away by the previous sew alongs she's done. So we've had a chat and Reece is going to do a sew along for the Companion carpet bag, right here on the blog this month!

  • Okie doke lovelies, it's time to finish those Nappy bags up and get using them!

    If you've chosen to add feet then you'll want to cut a piece of bag base 4.5" x 13.5" (11cm x 35cm), centre it over the base of the bag and mark where the holes you've previously made are. Then cut out the cross in the plastic base.

  • Hello lovelies,

    We're nearly finished with our Nappy bags (or travel bags!), don't forget to link up to the Facebook groups to be in with a chance to win the prizes!

    Now we're ready to attach our lining main pieces, with pockets already attached. If you've got any zipped pockets pinned out of the way unpin them now. Open the zip fully and then turn the outer of your bag inside out.
