The big bag!

September 9, 2011

I’m back into sewing purses again. I stopped for a little bit to get my etsy shop up. This is the one i finished yesterday. It isn’t for sale, but it was so fun to make – I’m making 3 more.

I tried the magnetic snap closures fir the first time and love them. I lined the bag and put elastic pockets along one side of the interior. There is a flush zipper on the outside, trimmed in the same fabric as the handles.

I also designed and made a little matching bag just the size of an iPod or cell phone. I gave it a nice little metal hook clasp so the iPod case can be clipped to the inside of the bag, or you can remove it and clip it to anything else. That way, your phone will never be lost in the bottom of you bag.
The inside of the cell phone case is lined with flannel, so it’s soft and padded for your screens. I think I’ll make one big enough for sunglasses, too, as I’ve been out all day and had nowhere in my bag to safely store my sunglasses.
I’m also excited to start my next style of bags. I created the pattern for those completely from scratch. Ohhh, I have more ideas than time.
Anyways, I have a question. Is there anything you would love to see in a bag? You know, when you have or had a bag you liked, but you found yourself thinking, “this bag would be perfect if it had……..”.
