just finished my first ever bag!


It's my first ever bag, no pattern, just me and my poor brain. This was lots of fun - fabric was left over from cushions. This one is not for sale, but is open for comment! Finished at 11:32pm Sat night...
Hope your weekend is treating you beautifully,

nice work, I think I have the same fabric in an other colour, something brownish that I wanted to use for a bag as well, that's funny!

Thanks! Yes, I love this fabric - have loads of it left too, so there are many more possibilities! Make sure you take photos of your bag when you are done xx

well done!, isnt it a buzz when you wing it without a pattern? so cool to know that it's the only one around, till you make another that is!!

Very cute indeed!! I love the look of it made with Toile too!! I have some of that fabric hiding in my staff somewhere!! Great job designing - you just wait to see what you come up with next - It is an addiction!
