Yesterday afternoon I made myself a new bag. I used this pattern from Anna Maria Horner. I made the smaller size and found that it came together really easily. I love it!
I used a remnant of cotton sateen curtain fabric as the foundation and I also added a layer to the strap to make it a bit thicker. For the patchwork I went through my shot cotton scraps...
...so many fabulous colours!
The only change I made to the pattern was to join the lining to the bag outer by sewing together the seam allowances prior to closing the opening in the lining.
Speaking of the lining, I used a tobacco coloured Kaffe Fassett print with hot pink wisteria blooms, a nice contrast to the more graphic exterior.
It was my first time adding a magnetic snap, so easy! and so useful!
I had fun making this, can you tell?
