Midweek bag eye candy

I did say I would share a few more pictures of bags I have made with you. I love making bags - I find it immensely satisfying and it helps me de-stress after a long day at work. My job doesn't involve a whole lot of creativity for the most part and sewing gives me a chance to get some back into my life. I like that a bag project can either take me a couple of evenings to do or be stretched over several evenings of leisurely sewing. I like that I don't have to worry about whether it fits - a problem I still have when making clothes for myself! Best of all, people love being given something handmade and I get a big kick out of their delight. So it's a win-win situation for all really. Here are a few bags I have made.

This one was given to a local brass band for their annual fund-raising raffle.

I love this Alexander Henry fabric with the geishas, don't you?

This cute pleated bag was a special present for my lovely teenage cousin in Malaysia.

I utterly love this anime print. It's another Alexander Henry fabric called Thunder Flower.

And finally, this cute bag made from an old table cloth and an old cushion cover is one of my favourites.

  1. They're all so cute! My favorite is the coin purse with the anime print.

  2. Love them all - but I really, really like the AH prints! shame it's so hard to find Thunder Flower!
