Hi Dear Friends! I was thinking to title this post ‘bag business’ but then realized that in fact it is a business bag…
… because I made it to use at work. I carry always many things with me + materials for projects to make at work, so I need big bag It’s better to have everything in one than to carry many bags
This was the beginning of the Project. As you see I changed again my mind and didn’t use the burlap for outside pocket as I have thought. I prefered not to cover this very Special linen with angels.
This was the next ‘material collection’. Finally all the Materials I used were from friends, so this is also Special ‘friend’ bag! Blue angel linen is a present from a dear friend and I have saved it for a Special Project. The same goes with the dark, thin, denim cotton, present from Judith. For the lining I used also fabric from a friend.
I found this tool very useful to make the seam allowances flat. I have found the tool from my mother’s painting BOX and I guess it has belonged to my grandfather.
Fortunately I had these Super cute hexagon templates from Annett, because my hexagon BOX was at work.
Usually I make lots of pockets, zippers, details after details and need endless hours to finish the bag. This time I decided to keep it simple. No pockets, just zipper to close the bag and that’s also in easy way, sewn on with the binding.
Long time ago this ‘stuff’ was supposed to become a ‘2 in 1’ make up bag. Now I shall make a clutch bag with them. That will be a handbag for the small things in the big tote.
Thank you so much dear friends – as Mia said, you are now everyday with me!
Now furry friends are waiting for me, so I have to go. Thank you for stopping by and for your sweet comments about our NEW shop! I hope to make few more bags like this and I have already some ideas for my beautiful, NEW Fabrics.
Have a wonderful weekend!
