Bags galore

I am probably one of a few women who don't really do bags. I hate carrying a handbag and certainly don't do the matching bag and shoes thing. However I have found myself making them in the past week or so. It started when I bought some curtains from a charity shop and thought the material would work well on a project I had been mulling over for a while. To my surprise it worked really well and I am very pleased with it.

The first backpack

Today I didn't have a lot of time for creative sewing as I had some repairs and alterations to do for myself and others but I did have an hours play and have just finished another bag. This time a simple tote (again from charity shop curtains).
Add these to the little toiletries bag I made at the weekend and they are beginning to build up into a nice collection.
They will be calling me the bag lady if I'm not careful!!


  1. Loving the backpack. Do you plan to sell these?

  2. Hi Freda, I'm planning to. Nigel and I are doing a sale in Crewe in October so I am building up some stock for that. Never sold anything I have made before so don't know how it will go.
