A Hand-y Bag!

I’ve made this handy little bag for carrying around my stitching ‘bits n’ bobs’ when I’m on the move .......... this one in brown is for me!!




and this one is for my lovely bloggy friend, Wendy over at the ‘The Quiet Room’.



It was Wendy’s birthday recently, so I had made her a few things, although I admit I was a tad late sending her gifts ….. but I think she’s forgiven me though!!


I made Wendy’s with some of the beautiful ‘Field Notes’ fabric by the very talented ‘Blackbird Designs’ ladies – such gorgeous fabric. Whereas mine (above top) was a ‘cheap as chips’ fabric I picked up in the market a while ago …… quite cute though all the same I thought.


I’ve never sewn with PVC before (see pocket), so that was a challenge, and I haven’t put many zippers in before either, so it was a double whammy!! In all honesty, the brown one was a bit of a practice run before making the one for Wendy …. wanted to make sure I got it right you see, so I hope I did!!


A hand-y bag for when you’re on the move, and just have to take a bit of stitching along!!

They are wonderful Julia. After sewing a zip in for the first time at my sewing class I am impressed with anyone that can sew in zips! Well done. They are perfect. x
