So another week and more bags! I have been busy making 2 more of the same style as I showed you last week.
I decided to make the sewing themed bag a bit more quirky by adding a handmade ribbon tape measure brooch to it
I really like the blue coloured bag, I’m not sure if it will make it to the craft fair!
I have also tried another variation on the purse frame – the big bobble clutch! However this is proving a lot more difficult than the curved frame version. You make it in a similar way to the other ones, but it is a lot more padded and has a feeling of luxury. I’m just struggling a little with getting the end pieces in right, so photos will have to wait till next week!
After the big bobble clutch, I want to try some patterns for bags using Harris Tweed. I think the tweed will be ideal on bags for autumn. Leading on from my questions last week, I was wondering those of you who buy fabric, what sizes do you tend to buy – fat quarters, half metres, full metres? I tend to just get fat quarters, as I think the cost looks more affordable! I am so tempted by the fat quarter packs too – they are always in such lovely coordinating fabric that I cant resist buying them!
As usual I’ll be popping over to Handmade Harbour for Handmade Monday, why don’t you join me?
