Firstly my apologies for being slack on my postings. While I haven’t lost my sew-jo, I have kinda lost my blog-jo. I’m super busy and photographing me, wearing things I have made, just hasn’t been floating my boat lately. Poos.
But I did whip something up this weekend – the Amy Butler Blossom Bag (its a free pattern – check it out!!).
But I’m super in love with this. And check out the internal fabric… Its one of my favorites ever.
This pattern was pretty easy to put together, though it took many many pieces! Each of the internal dividers takes 4 pieces of fabric, 2 panels of peltex (which I didn’t have so just used a thick, thick interfacing) and 2 pieces of interfacing – quite a bit of cutting out!
It didn’t all come together smoothly. It all ended up very thick and sewing round the ends of the bag was super fiddly. I also managed to sew the handles on wrong and only realised it at the very very end. But with a quick McGyver-ing I cut the handles in half and sewed it all back together again 🙂
So this is my first bag – and my next bag pattern arrived today… The Camp Stitchalot Craft bag… its officially on the list!
