Handmade by Ilaria


Awww you guys, you're all the best at bag making, that's for sure!

I received some lovely feedback on Etsy from Ilaria who'd purchased my Rosie Patchwork bag pattern and made her own version. Of course I asked for some photos to share with you on my blog!

Don't you love this flower?! It's so gorgeous!

Ilaria found it hard to find fusible fleece so used what she had to hand and I must say, I think her version has turned out beautifully! What do you think?

Just yesterday Ilaria shared with my the photos from her Stella bag too!

Aren't her pleats perfect!

Thank you for sharing your Rosie & Stella with us Ilaria, we can't wait to see the others that you make.

p.s. if you've made a bag from my pattern, please do drop me an email and let me know, I'd love to feature you!
