1 In Sewing/ The Best Of Emkie

Did you know labour and bag making really do mix ;P

Hi everyone

As you know the Small Little Monster arrived recently, and while I was in labour, I decided to try and distract myself with sewing!

It worked – sort of – I think ;D

Either way, I did finish my Sling bag, a free pattern by “At home with Mrs H” , while in labour 🙂

I reused the strap from an old handbag, so I didn’t have to actually make that part – which made the creation of this bag much faster!
This was such a great free pattern!  The instructions were very easy to follow, and the whole sew was really quick.  I think this bag would make a great 1st sew if you have never sewn a bag before as the techniques used to construct it are all quite basic and straight forward.  I will definitely be making more!
The fabrics I have used are:
Outer – AMH field study (purchased from hotpossum on IG during a destash sale)
Lining – Grey homespun (purchased from spotlight)
I haven’t had a chance to actually use the bag yet…but hopefully I will at some point soon 🙂
