Home made bag

Last week I purchased some spotty material
I wanted to make another larger bag
 I used this design from here
 In a previous post I said I was going to use blue on the lining
the fabric was a bit lighter weight, 
but I had this purple left over from a dress made ages ago
 As well as being large I wanted big inside pockets
 Plus a pocket at the front
 Excuse the pun but it has bags of room
Just now need a picnic to go inside.

All the fabrics other than the spotty material I had in my stash. The handles were made from some upholstery fabric, so very heavy duty. The fake suede I have no idea where it came from, it is not something I would purchase myself. I am pleased with my afternoon's work, I did swap the colours around before deciding on the above. The pattern is very easy to make, you make 2 bags an outer and an inner and then sew them together, so no scrappy ends and loads of strength.
I have another project in mind, I want to re-purpose a long dress into a summer dress, I got my tailors dummy set up all ready for the make.


  1. It looks great, nice and roomy so I'm sure you'll get lots of use out of it.

  2. Love that bag! I can think of lots of ways to use it!

  3. Now this looks like a bag I could make . . . I like the boxy-ness and the straps are just perfect.
