New make: The Weekender Bag

Hey folks! I’m determined to make a few Xmas presents this year, and while this bag isn’t necessarily one of them (although it could be) I’m definitely going through a little non-apparel phase. I have to say I’m ridiculously happy with this bag. I can only describe it in terms of it being the way I’d like to feel about the clothes I make. That is, that it’s so much better and nicer than anything I could or would purchase in the shops, and not even because the sewing is so wonderful, but just because of the level of detail and the materials. I’m sure I will feel this way about clothes once I’ve improved on the fit and made something a little more complicated (maybe my coat?), but for now, the bag rules!!

Party Zebra Tote Bag

I finished this bag off a few days ago and, on the whole, I’m fairly pleased with it. It’s nice and sturdy, I actually like the way it looks, and I’ll definitely use it. I learnt how to work with slightly thicker fabrics, improved my topstitching a little, learnt how to make straps, and a few other bag basics.
