Description


I have been looking at the wonderful bags people have been making for awhile now & finally broke out of my comfort zone & gave it a go!
I'm really chuffed with the result & will be using it to take my knitting & sewing to my stitchery class from now on.
I didn't use a really heavyduty interfacing but am happy with it how it is.
The one major whoopsie I did do was sew the straps incorrectly as the pics show they are meant to be sewn front strap to front strap & back to back but I sewed them side to side!
I have since unpicked them & sewn them how they are supposed to be..duh!

My daughter asked me to make her a bag for Tech that would double as a nappy bag for when she goes back to her studies next month so I adapted this pattern by adding internal pockets.
I'm sure she'll like it!

Hi, I am one of your followers and I am checking in to see what you have been sewing. Love these bags. Wonderful pattern and great fabric choices. Still.....those Peg aprons are my real love. You have a great flare for picking good prints and colors. Thanks for the inspiration.

Hello again Febes. Just checking in to see what is new. Looking forward to a new project post from you. I have posted some smaller projects, nothing major as we spent all summer moving and my sewing stuff is scattered. Just putting things back together now!
