It is an overcast, cooler day in Melbourne! I am sitting in the garden writing this post for my lovely new sewing bag! It is so nice to be outside to enjoy the garden!
I absolutely love this bag it is soft and velvety!!! I bought the Anna Marie Horner (AMH) Loulouthi velveteen at Amitie Textiles a while ago and, as with all good intentions, the fabric sat in my stash patiently waiting to be sewed. The bag is based on a pattern by Lisa Chandler @ Chandlers Cottage. I modified the pattern to exclude the 3D embellishments as this fabric says it all! The bag has lots of room to hold sewing fabrics and large pockets to store sewing notions.
The bag is lined with Michael Miller “Skinny Stripe” from the Poppy Collection and I love the AMH fabric at the base! It just adds a point of difference and makes it even nicer!
For the handles I used AMH fabric on the outside and lining fabric on the inside. I attached interfacing to the lining fabric to give a little more support. I top stitched down each side handles and the top of the bag for additional reinforcement. I chose not to use any batting for the velveteen as I wanted to keep the bag soft and light! The bag measure 20″ by 15″ ! I am looking forward to using it on my next sewing day……
