A bag for me ...... finally

Over the last few months I have done a lot of sewing but for others and the markets but not really anything personal for me. As I had a bag to make for a friend I decided to make one for me too. I have had some fabric picked out for a while so it what really nice to use it.

A Bucket Bag for me

I used the same pattern as i did for this bag but stuck with the standard design - just added a magnetic snap to close the main part of the bag. I'm really happy with it.

This pattern and others are available on etsy from Keyka Lou - their patterns are really easy to use.

Internal Pocket and Magnetic Snap

These labels I use are great. They iron on first so its easy to sew in place with no slipping. There are so many designs to choose from. Check them out here. 

I have also linked to the following parties - wow there is some amazing people busy out there.
