This weeks handmade Monday post consists of a custom order. I was asked to make a bag to replace one that had worn out from carrying one too many library books. My brief was to make it more or less the same design and size as the old one. I gave the customer some ideas of some funky fabrics and we decided on a very apt fabric showing shelves of books in a girly pink.
I had never made a bag of this design before ( a flap over style) however I am delighted with the result!
I used a contrasting red lining so there wasn’t too much pink!
The customer and her children were delighted with their new bag and sent me a photo when it arrived
I have also made another bag using the same fabric but in a different design
My last make was a quick spur of the minute design using up the selvedge ends of my fabric – I sewed them together to form a pin cushion
Both the bag and pin cushion are now available in my Folksy shop!
Over now to the rest of the gang at Handmade Monday, I’m sure there’s some delights to browse through this week! Once again, I do read all of your posts, I’m still struggling to comment on some of them though 😦
