Suddenly, A Bag

It’s my sister’s birthday tomorrow.  I made her a bag.Bag_4

It’s a slightly modified version of the Two-Zip Hipster from Dog Under My Desk.  The pattern went together pretty well, despite the fact that I used Ikea furnishing fabric for the outer and the weird selection of interfacings I could find locally rather than all quilting-weight cottons and Pellon, which I don’t think exists here.  I did have fun fussy-cutting the outer fabric for the inner and outer pockets.  🙂

I also made and added a little clip to hold keys:Bag_1

And an extra zipped pocket on the other side of the lining:Bag_2Bag_3

It went a bit wrinkly at the corners, but seems to be ok now the bag’s all finished.  Bags can never have too many pockets, to my mind.Bag_5

I also decided to use webbing for the strap rather than making one from the fabric:Bag_8All in all, I’m pretty pleased with it!

  1. You’ve made quite a beautiful bag for your sister! And this butterfly fabric is perfect for spring and summer. I love your idea of adding a clip for holding keys (that would be very useful to me… lol). I would love receiving such a bag for my birthday!

    1. Thank you! I think she liked it too – her current bag is looking very tired, so I hope this one makes a good replacement. 🙂 I enjoyed making it so much that I want to make one for myself now!
