Shabby Patchwork Bag


Safely ensconced in crafty corner surrounded by all my crafty goodies is bliss ♡ ♡
I still can't find anything mind you as I'm still trying to navigate my way round all my new cupboards. My sewing machine is now settled into its new home too, so had to give it a little test drive!



I scoured my fabric stash, for a selection of blues to make my patchwork bag, as I've wanted a denim style bag for a while.

Couldn't stop at just the bag, so made a purse and a make up bag too. A girl can never have enough bags don't you think!




Have a lovely weekend and maybe we might just see some sun. ☼

Happy Crafting XXX

Love seeing your sewing projects....as I said before, I can't even sew a button on and I so wish, I could make things like this.

What a gorgeous set! Love that blue patchwork! I'm a bit like Paula, though I can just about thread up my sewing machine and sew a straight line, everything else is way beyond me, so I am in awe of something like this.

As a lover of bags I can just imagine the joy as saying "I need a bag to match ......" and of you pop and look through your fabric stash to create a bespoke bag - what an incredible feeling that must be.
Yes, once again I am in awe!

Paula, how adorable this denim collection will look with jeans or a denim skirt! Stunning set and such great sewing! I keep wanting to tune-up my neglected sewing machine, but then wonder where I would put it!!! I need to organize my craft room! Enjoy the new space and I would love to see pictures! Hugs!
