Sewing, crafting, inspiration…
The latest issue of Sewing World magazine is in the shops now! It’s another bumper issue, filled with gorgeous projects and sewing techniques to learn. I’m so excited to let you know about my new bag making project, featured in this issue. It’s the Notting Hill Handbag which I made with the most amazing fabrics from Joel Dewberry in Pristine Poppy and Tartan in Poppy. I felt these fabrics needed a bold, statement piece which inspired me to make this bag…

p.s. The finished Notting Hill handbag featured in the magazine is now available for sale in my Etsy shop. I only made one of these bags so you’ll be getting the actual one from the magazine and it’s truly one-of-a-kind. It would make a very unique Christmas present for a loved one.
