Yesterday I made a new little bag called the "Oh So Soothing Bag".
It's from a book I found in the library:
The pattern was relatively easy to follow, but does assume a knowledge of sewing - like when it tells you to
'make an inverted box pleat' with no further explanation or picture to help.
(I had to scrutinise the picture of the finished bag, and Google a box pleat to make sure I was doing it right)
I liked that the bag was made of 4 panels stitched together.
But if I were to make another one, I would choose to join the base pieces of the inner and outer fabric separately to the inner and outer bag, and hand-stitch the opening closed - rather than the method chosen in this book which leaves the raw edges of the base visible on the inside of the bag:
It's a very cute bag and a lovely design:
I think it would be a great way to give a gift of some nice toiletries - perhaps I'll make some up for Christmas time!
I'll be linking this post to many of the fabulous linky parties whose pretty buttons can be found on the bottom of this page and whose direct links can be found on my linky party page.
