Not another bag I hear you cry! Yes, I do seem to have a bit of a fascination for making them and I'll probably burn myself out on it eventually but it's a bit like a box of chocolates - you have to have just one more :)
I think of all the bags I've made this one is, so far, my favourite. The pattern is the Sew Charming Bag by Rosehip Lane
and the fabric is Neptune by Tula Pink for Moda Fabrics.
As soon as I saw this fabric line I fell in love with the gorgeous ocean shades and nautical prints.
Here's a view of the inside of the bag. I added extra pockets as I don't think you can ever have too many!
I had plenty of fabric left so decided to make a project bag to go inside of the big bag.
I've stitched this mermaid a few times now and decided it would be perfect for the pockets on the front and back of this little drawstring bag.
I've made this bag before using a Gail Pan design called Poppy's Sewing Set.
and because I can never resist making matching items I made a pincushion from the Fig Tree Quilts pattern Petite Gateaux and my favourite little needlecase from a tutorial you can find on this blog
I actually changed the turquoise button on the needlecase after these pictures were taken as thought it looked better with a covered button that matched the one on the pincushion.
Here's a view of the inside of the needlecase. If you haven't made one of these before they are super easy, take about half an hour (if that) to make and always turn out great.
I do have other finished items to share but I haven't taken the pictures yet so will save them for next time. Just a hint.........there's another bag coming soon :)
Have a great day and thanks as always for visiting my blog.
