Some people love bag making. I am not one of these people. I don’t know what it is about the whole project, but making bags has always been something I’m not confortable with.
Just like zippers. They fall into the same category for me.
Urgh! Bags and zippers… and don’t even get me started on the whole idea of making a bag WITH a zipper. I fear my brain could just explode out of my ears.
Okay, I admit, that was slightly dramatic so let’s go back to the subject at hand. I made a bag. It’s a great big tote bag. It’s lined. It’s blue and pink. And I’m as pleased as punch with it.
The fabric is from a few years ago. It’s by Franchelle Contreras for Henry Glass Fabrics. I have hoarded it for years and it was about time I used it for something.
Little Miss was modelling the bag for me because there really isn’t a fabulous way to show off a bag without someone holding it, is there?
The pattern is the Two-Tone Fabric Tote by Make it & Love it.
It really is an excellent tutorial with step by step instructions and photographs. Perfect for anyone like me, who is really not a fan of making bags.
You know, to help combat my dislike, I might just have to go and make myself another one. Little miss thinks that she might like this bag for herself.
