Midweek bag eye candy

Once again it's that time of the week and I'd like to share with you some bag / purse things that I have made.

There is a use for all those teeny bits of leftover fabric after all!! A 'wristlet' or pouch that hangs off your wrist. Zip at the top and lined with a dark green cotton material. These are really fun to make and there are tons of excellent tutorials online for zippy wristlets.

Here is a soft, yet structured, capacious handbag in a lovely brown decorator weight fabric. It's lined with a bright red poplin cotton.

This teacher tote was made from an oriental themed fabric teamed with black drill cotton. The inside is fully lined and has 2 large pockets. Happily accommodates A4 sized papers and folders. Perfect for a teacher, right?

This neat little clutchbag has a hex frame opening. I have a couple of these hex frames in my toolbox. I must get around to making something which will use them.

This is a ‘stuffy’ – so called because it’s good for stuffing bits into ... like change for parking ticket machines (also brilliant for putting your parking meter ticket into so it doesn’t get lost) simple and quick to whip up and a really good use of leftover scraps. I was thinking of doing a tutorial for this little zippy thing - would you like to see a tutorial for this?

I hope your week is going well so far my friends.


  1. I would love to see a tutorial :0)

    Your bags look fantastic!

  2. You can never have too many tutorials!

    Ady, I love that clutch bag with the hex frame - I haven't tried one of those yet .... I have more orders than I know what to do with, so I can't / shan't let myself be side-tracked at the mo!

  3. A tutorial for the little zippy purse would be great. There's plenty around for normal zip pouches but I haven't spotted any with the zip in the middle.
