Spring has officially started!!! :)
Here in Sicily it's warm and sunny, after some weeks of bad weather I spent sewing new things for the shop.
Today I want to show you two bags I realized with a sturdy cotton fabric with a simple and funny floral pattern, printed on cream background.
They are quite big and roomy, with a rustic style, perfect for spring adventures!
The first bag I made is this one:
I tested this pattern, new to me, making this bag and it works very well, like all the patterns of this company I've used before.
The things I like most of this bag are:
- the circular bottom and its pleates:
- the elastic pockets inside (so roomy!!!):
- Some details like the closure (vintage wooden button + cord):
I've uploaded this bag in my shop; it's listed as a bucket bag or a satchel, because it's shape it's particular and it's different from the flat totes I use to sew.
Making this bag required a lot of fabric, but some of it left and I decided to use it to make another shoulder bag:
100% designed and made by me.
It's a simple tote with some pleates on top and a pocket inside (closed by a metallic snap):
It's large and leightweight. You can find it here.
Probably I like best this tote, although Melody bag has a lovely design, too.
Recently I'm also working on some projects which involve the use of very tiny scraps of fabrics. Are you interested?
