A duo of Convertible bags08:00
I'm not very good at sewing the same thing over and over, I think that's why I like designing so much, I can have a lot of variety in life!
When my friend asked me for another two convertible bags to give as gifts I decided to batch sew them. Of course I hadn't thought about the fact that they'd use very different thread colours....oops!
The left is made with Kona Solids in Black and with a pocket of Mixteca organic cotton in the owl print from Cloud 9 fabrics.
The right is made with light zakka linen with a pocket of Cath Kidston roses.
I wouldn't recommend making a bag from linen...for future reference!
The linings each have one zipped pocket and one slip pocket as per the pattern.
I used Kona Cotton solids in Cyan for the lining of the black bag, and Cath Kidston roses for the lining of the linen bag.
I added 'handmade by Mrs H' satin labels into the pocket seams. I buy them on eBay from here.
As is usual for Convertible bags, they change from a shoulder or cross body bag to a small backpack easily.
If you'd like to make your own Convertible bag you can find the pattern on Patterns to Print.
I love these bags with solid outers and contrast pockets, it makes them easy to wear but still fun!
