Unfortunately this pattern has been “retired” and is no longer available, which is a shame as it is quite an easy pattern to follow and the finished product is lovely.
It took me 3 hours from from start to finish, and only used just over a fat 1/4 of fabric.
I raided my stash of absolute favourite fabrics for this bag, and I think I’m going to love it forever – and going to want to be invited to lots of parties so I have an excuse to use it 😛
The fabric I’ve used is “Punchy Pique” by Robert Kaufman for the exterior and a remnant I bought from spotlight for the lining. The lining fabric has a white design on a white background and so it doesn’t show up in any of the photos – which is a shame as it is really pretty and matched in well with some of the paisley(ish) print on the exterior fabric.
I made the largest version of the pattern, and I’m glad I did as I can fit soooo much in there and I wont have to decide on what to leave behind.
The only thing I would change next time I make this bag (and I will make it again!), is to move the inside pocket to the back pannel – as I think it is slightly weird having it on the front pannel, but maybe that is just personal taste?
Even though the bag is for me, I decided to add in one of my labels – why not hey?! I made it 😛
Now…who wants to invite me to a party so I can use my new bag?
