I had my sewing machine out this weekend and made these two bags which I am quite happy with (for a change!)
The pink and green one is a net book bag, quite small measuring approximately 10 x 11 inches (excluding the handles). I followed the tutorial at My Backyard Eden which is very clear and easy to follow and can be adapted to any size of bag.
Between the main fabric and lining I sandwiched quite a thick layer of wadding - too thick really, but at least it will protect the contents of the bag. It's very soft and plump, like a pillow.
I love this cotton fabric with beach huts on. I've had it quite a while and couldn't decide what to do with it, but eventually settled for this quite simple tote bag. It's another smallish one and measures approximately the same as the other bag.
I like the beach huts side much more though and added a couple of die cut flowers to that side under the handles with some co-ordinating buttons.
I think I'll be making some more of these soon!
Thanks for looking!
