My mum loved the fold-away shopping bag a lot. She asked me to make her two of them but she wanted a small addition. She wanted little carry straps so she could loop the folded-up bag over her wrist. So I made her these.
The little straps are made from 10 inch x 2 inch bits of fabric folded into themselves and stitched along each long side. The finished strap is sewn into the flap. Here's another view.
They looked really cute - like mini handbags!
This Amy Butler fabric makes me happy - it's so bright and cheerful. This is from her Love home decorating fabric range - I think it's Paradise garden. I have some more of this left in my stash just crying out to be made into a bag for myself.
This next one is in another of Amy Butler's fabrics - I think this one is from the Daisy Chain range. Also home decorating weight fabric.
I like the addition of the small strap. I might just have to make myself a few more.
I hope your week is going well, friends.
