I can’t believe that the Bag Of the Month Club is almost over…But I am so excited that they are going to be doing another club over the next 6 months! FYI there are only a couple of days left to get your membership at the early bird rate 😉
The last 6 months have gone sooooooo quickly! So to recap, at the start of this years club, I challenged myself to make all 6 bags from the Jan-June club…so far I have not achieved this, however there is still 6 months of the year left 😉 Unfortunately for me there are another 6 bags coming so I’m going to be busy lol!
Third was the Polaris Bag – I haven’t shared my photos of this bag here on my blog yet…so I’m going to today…
The polaris bag was not a hard bag to make – although it has a drop in lining, which is my most hated technique in bag sewing 😉 I added a curved front pocket, left off the piping and made the rest of the bag as stated in the pattern. I actually cut up an old bag to make this bag (the bag I cut up was an early version of the Hippo Hobo funnily enough!), so this little bag doesn’t require much fabric or interfacing, and with a hardware list of only a few items this bag is a great one to make for gifts!
Fourth was the Gabby Bag – This was another bag I haven’t shared here on my blog yet…Can you tell I’ve been too busy sharing all my Hippo Hobo tutorials?! Lol! So who wants to see my photos of this great bag? You all do?! Yay 🙂 Keep reading my friends…
Gabby is a gorgeous bag. But you know what is even better about her? She is quite an easy and quick sew! I used fleece instead of foam, and I left off the internal zip pocket. I also used 1″ (2.5cm) triangular rings on the sides and repurposed the leather strap from an old bag.
My favourite thing about the Gabby Bag is the sides – they have such a nice shape and its such an easy effect to achieve…if your looking for your next project, I highly recommend this one be on your list!
Fifth up was The Brooklyn Bag, which I haven’t gotten around to making yet, and lastly was the Lunar Collection, another which I have not made yet – I hope to make both of these bags before the end of 2016 and I’ll be sure to let you all know how I go with this challenge I have set myself 😉
I hope you enjoyed my little recap, have you joined the Bag of the Month club this year? How many of the bags have you made?
