Wow, it is hard to believe that I haven't posted in 6 months. I have continued to sew...it is my therapy. I have been testing some new patterns, some that I can share shortly and some that will take a while to appear. So let me show you the first test bag I can show.
I have to say that I love testing for Sarah from Cozy Nest Design because I can always be sure that her bags will be unique and fun. Not to mention that the pattern itself will be thorough and easy to understand. Remember the Seat Belt Bags I have done...yep those were Sarah's.
Here is the newest bag from Cozy Nest Design...The Belinda Bag. Here are the fabrics I chose to go with. The solid brown is a textured faux leather. That was used for the flap and strap. The second gray and brown fabric is a quilting cotton and it was used for the exterior bag fabric. The two-toned brown fabric is also a quilting cotton and was used for the lining.
This pattern comes in two sizes, a small that measures 11" x 9.5" x 4" and a large that measures 13" x 11" x 4.25". I chose to make the small size.
The only change I made to the pattern was increase the strap length so it can be worn as a cross body.
The inside has a zippered pocket. The small bag is the perfect size for just the essentials.
The Belinda Bag pattern is on sale for $5 until Feb. 14, 2017. You can get the pattern, get more info and see all of the tester bags here.
