After my little mitten adventure yesterday, I thought I would make something nice & simple for myself today.
Again, I took inspiration & direction from a Craftsy course. The instructor is Kristen Link & the free course also has instructions on how to make a small zipper pouch which is another simple project I am hoping to embark on as soon as I get over my fear of zippers (soon I hope!).
I really love how this bag came out. I used the last of the denim that I had left from Mum’s bucket bag & I think it worked really well with the neutral patterned fabric. The only thing I really changed from the pattern was that I made the pocket significantly bigger. I wanted to be able to drop my keys & phone in there to avoid the inevitable fishing expedition I have to embark on every time I get back to the car.
You could have a lot of fun with this bag, using different patterns, colours etc. It is designed to be fully reversible so you could have two completely different fabrics & make it a true two-in-one bag, however, I just chose a plain fabric for my lining as I’m happy not to take advantage of the reversible design this time.
I can see this bag getting a lot of use, especially for market visits & quick bike rides to the supermarket. I also think this would be a great gift & I think I will make a few for that very purpose this year.
Well, that’s it for another weekend, back to the real world tomorrow.
Hoping to update the blog with some natural health remedies that I’ve been trying lately. I will try to get that up in the next couple of weeks.
