Olive green Rosie bag08:00
Friends, there is 2 months & 2 days left til Christmas. Within a month, you'll be thinking of Christmas and then soon after the new year. What of your WIP pile? How many works in progress do you have? I would really, really, really love to start next year without a WIP pile.
*break for you all to roll around laughing now*
One of the things in my pile was my very first prototype Rosie bag. I used an upcycled pillow case for the base and some olive twill for the top, just to size things out and test. It's sat unloved ever since, but I haven't been able to throw it away, because I made it! Anyone else feel like this?
I decided enough was enough so I ordered some brown leather handles from bag-clasps.co.uk and a half meter of Robert Kaufman for Kona solid in the Oyster colour.
Not bad for an old pillowcase, right?
I put 1 zipped pocket, and 2 slip pockets inside along with a 'handmade by Mrs H' label. I was amazed at how quickly I can sew a zipped pocket when I'm not taking step-by-step photos!
I took photos of how to attach leather handles though if that helps? I'll post that later in the week for anyone who'd find it useful!
Instead of making the patchwork I just used this fabric as a solid, you just skip the patchwork parts of the pattern and just cut out the pattern from your solid fabric. If you want to make your own Rosie bag, you can find it in my etsy store for £3.
