My very first bag!

I made a bag this weekend - my very first one. Want to see it?

I'll post a better picture of it, as this one was taken with just artificial light and so it's not the best. I used batting instead of fusible fleece (the shop I got the fabric from doesn't sell it) and I thought I'd need quite thick fabric for the outside, but having sewn it, next time I'd use a normal thickness of fabric and find somewhere that sells fusible fleece.

It was fairly easy to do, and this great tutorial explained everything step by step.

My family was over today and they were all suitably impressed, so that's a win in my book!


  1. Glad to see you tried the pleated bag. It looks brilliant! x

  2. Your bag looks wonderful :) I love the fabric too :)

  3. Thanks. The fabric was a remnant piece, so it was a steal!

  4. What a lovely bag, bet it gets used loads.
