I’ve been trying to make time to blog since New Year, but been so busy! Not that I’m complaining though, it’s been a really great start to the year and I’m so excited to have another of my sewing projects featured in the latest issue of Sewing World magazine. Even more exciting, it’s on the front cover!
I really enjoyed making this bag as it’s such an elegant shape and I felt the fabrics were perfect with Valentine’s being just around the corner. The colours are fresh and bright, with a romantic design – available as a fabric bundle from Eclectic Maker. It’s Aqua Red in Nearby Floral by Michael Miller Fabrics.
I added box pleats to this handbag, for shape and depth, and a useful outer pocket is great for popping a mobile phone into. I used both interfacing and interlining with this design, so that the bag keeps it’s shape and will be really durable.
If you fancy picking up a copy the magazine, it’s available in most WH Smith shops as well as other outlets or see the Traplet Publications website.
I hope you like my latest project for the magazine, watch this space for more upcoming designs. Next month’s issue will be featuring my pretty, yet practical bi-fold wallet.
