Cotton & Steel Carnaval Bag


My first bag for 2015. The thoughts behind this bag was for it to be perfectly imperfect, lots of colour, inspiration and bend the rules!  I can’t wait to start using it!  Now I’m hoping to make some matching dog jackets for my favourite pooches in the same theme!





Eiffel Tower messenger bag

I decided to make another Kennedy Bag, this one I used Michael Miller’s Eiffel Towers in hot pink with Aqua Ta Dots fabrics. Once again I didn’t have all the accessories so I modified it a little. I changed the corners to a round shape (simply because it was easier…)



Bird Messenger Bag – Kennedy Bag pattern


I love finding new (free) patterns online.  I made this bag using The Kennedy Bag pattern by Sara Lawson from her Sew Sweetness Blog that I stumbled across.  I didn’t have all the accessories needed to make it, so I left a few details out, but still feel very happy with it.  The pattern was great to read and easy to follow!  I think I will make a few more!

Asian Doll Tote – pattern from SEWCANSHE


I got inspired today to make this tote using a free pattern from The Inspired Wren (which I found via SEWCANSHE).  I didn’t really follow the instructions as per usual, but used all the measurements.  It was quick and easy to made, the fabrics used was Asian Dolls on Pink by Alexander Henry and Tilda Red Dots by Tone Finnegar.
