A Project Bag



When I saw this pattern on Etsy I realised that it was just what I had been looking for, a Posh Project Bag, once I’d bought the pattern I was eager to get on and sew it

Piecing together the pattern after printing was a little tricky but I managed it ok

I love the detail, the pleats make for a special look and I just love the button closure which completes the straps


I machine embroidered on of my logos onto the pocket, the magnetic snaps work so well here too


I can fit plenty inside, I’m crocheting a blanket in case you’re interested Smile


I love all the topstitching, the bag was fiddly to cut out and I had to go very slowly around all the curves and then there was all the snipping and clipping of the curves

As with my other bags, it is fully interfaced, I love a crisp finish to my work

My only concern is that it might be a little shallow…I am going to adjust the pattern a bit to make the inside pocket slightly bigger and the depth of the bag about 5cms deeper

What do you think? I think I might be adding this little beauty to my shop when I’ve made the adjustments…

If you want to make your own bag then you can get the pattern from here

The designer has generously allowed me to sell what I sew as long as I put a link to her in my postings!

    Fab bag! And congratulations on your feedback – I’m up to well over 4000 on ebay, but I still like getting it 🙂

    I’ve been to Wells twice now, and still haven’t made it to the beach huts – if I get down there again I’m definitely going to see them!
