It has been quite a long standing joke in my family about how many bags I own!
It is true that I do love a bag and I was immediately impressed with this pretty one.
My Mind's Eye have chosen to bring out a range of DIY tote bags.
I set out to buy one and see what it was like to make.
What you get in your box is a fabric panel that is all labelled up, so you just need to cut out along the lines.
It is good quality and such a pretty design.
You also receive a flower embellishment, crystal brad and pin.
(I chose to go my own design way with this part of the design....all will be revealed!)
Handles cut out, I just cut the labels out too so I knew what was what.
I'm a very lazy sewing person - I never tack, always a row of pins for me!
My trusty little Elna sewing machine that I received when I was a teenager!
It really was very simple to make, all the instructions are on the inside of the box cover.
It was always stitching straight lines so perfect for any sewing ability.
When it came to that flower, I decided it needed a Spellbinders™ touch.
Yes, it is the flower I featured the other day! I used Blossoms Two with fabric and felt, still kept the circular cream flower provided and the crystal brad.
So, how long did it take to make??
Well it took 1.5 Christmas films! I subscribe to Virgin Media and they've devoted a whole channel
to Christmas films. They are all very fanciful, a little bit silly but warming to watch.
If you feel like a nice easy sewing project I do have these bags available in my Amazon Shop,
they are available in blue, red and pink - decisions decisions!
As I was making mine I thought it would be a lovely gift but...yes you've guessed it...
I can't part with it now!
I hope you are having an enjoyable weekend.
Take care friends.
