I had a bit of a bag making binge this year, and I've made quite a few bags, wallets and pouches. So much so I will probably need to sell some on Etsy in the near future . . . . . for real. Watch this space.
One of the bags was this lovely one from Emmaline called the Retreat Bag. this is actually a free pattern - so if you fancy trying your hand at bag making, this is a great one to start with. It makes a good washbag/makeup bag/project bag, and is based on a 'box' bag.
It takes just two fat quarters - always a win in my book as I have an awful lot of 'paired' fabrics just waiting to made into something! The difference with this bag is that is uses wires just below the zip to give the bag some structure and hold open the 'mouth'.
How cute is this?
Coming to an Etsy store near you very soon!!!
