I finally tackled the Sydney Cross Body Bag from Swoon. For some reason the pockets seemed daunting. In the end it was a breeze and I love how it came out! This is a Christmas gift for my daughter, it’s designed to be an artist’s bag with spots for her notebooks and drawing pencils inside.
Inizio I have no idea why I’ve held out on making this wallet. I ordered the template from Tops & Bobbins a long time ago, but I guess maybe the sheer number of pieces it had scared me off? Once upon a time I watched a YouTube video that made it look incredibly confusing, too.Continue reading “Swoon Pearl – The Pumpkin King series”
This October I have BIG PLANS to create and share with you TWENTY ‘This is Halloween’ themed projects! This is the first. This is the Charlotte Tote from Swoon Patterns. This stained glass print was gorgeous, but I knew it was going to be tricky to work with it. I think it looks great inContinue reading “This is Halloween!”
Inizio I’m so excited to share with you my finished Charlotte bag from Swoon Patterns. I used a template from Tops & Bobbins, which makes everything so much easier, especially when cutting things like vinyl and cork. I used some fuchsia cork from Sew Sweetness and a custom print from Spoonflower, along with some gorgeousContinue reading “Princess Charlotte”
I cut out this Mimosa bag from Blue Calla patterns a while ago now, back in May I think. I was wary to work with the gorgeous gold flecked cork, I didn’t want to mess it up! I’ve come a long way since then and couldn’t be prouder of this bag!
I am so proud of my Alice Alice. I used the Wonderland line from Rifle Paper Co and the Alice Tote pattern from Swoon. I also used my amazing templates from Tops & Bobbins to perfectly align the little Alice. The accent is all denim cork from Sew Sweetness.
Although I subscribe to the Bag of the Month club, I didn’t make many (or any?) of the bags this year. Except one. This is the Lousie Barrel Bag from Swoon. It was the least complicated and least… how do I want to say this… the least something. I used my fave Grunge Triangles fromContinue reading “Oh, Holo There!”
With London in mind yesterday, I created this super simple and demure bag. I used some incredibly geographically inaccurate Passport fabric from, featuring famous London landmarks and accented with gorgeous black Essex Linen. The pattern is the Evelyn Tote from Swoon. I’m not crazy about how the straps came out, I really didn’t like theContinue reading “London Calling”
I wanted to share with you some pictures of my finished Bonnie Bucket bag from Swoon. I call this bag Ahab because of this swarthy tattooed captain here. I mad ea couple of changes to the bag as I went. Instead of the welt pocket, I created this contracting contrast trim for the front zipperContinue reading “Ahab”
