The holidays are fast approaching and along with organizing and sewing for Designin’ December, I have been asked and have decided to make a few Rosie© Bags as gifts. I have a few cut out and I’ll be slipping the finished Bags on here as they get done, so you can have a look at them too!
My first request was for one exactly the same as the one I made for my sister, with a lighter coloured lining though – if I had it. After all, I try to use stash and repurposed fabrics and supplies so sometimes the colour choices, etc. are not available! But I found enough for this bag, and maybe even one more!
My pieces are cut and interfaced properly.
That’s good, because it looks like I’m only getting started … seems like I have been bitten by the “bag bug” and have made another. My sister gave me a box of upholstery fabric (the cat “Sophie” is all mine) and I made my first bag with fabrics from it, my tote bag, which I have been using everyday to lug my possessions onto the bus to work and back again. That bag’s big enough to carry my laptop, just to give you an idea of the size. You can read all about that one here, if you wish!
Next I thought I might try a zippered cross-body bag. Smaller, but not too small that I can’t fit my iPad in it.
All my pieces are planned, measured, cut and fused with either fleece or interfacing.
