After the (sort of) success of my blue bag I thought I’d have another go at making one – and hopefully this time do it properly...
I had a five sun tops that were no longer wearable (long story that involved a faulty batch of sunscreen but I did get £50 compensation to buy some replacement fabric) so, along with scrap fabric that I had left from making some skirts, I cut out 46 five inch squares.
Once the squares had been stitched together I quilted the bag, this time, using diagonal lines.
The lining was made completely from a sun top. I simply cut the top into two then cut and pieced the fabric to fit the bag.
The top edge was binded using the same fabric as the handles and the flap.
As the bag is quite large and only has a press-stud on the flap to keep it fastened, I added ties at the ends of the bag. To neaten the tie ends I made little ‘bells’.
Have a great week.
