Wool Companion Carpet Bag


Hi lovelies,

Have you been sewing along with Reece's Companion Carpet Bag sew along this month? You've still got until the end of September to sew your own version and link up for your chance to win one of the great sew along prizes!

Here's the bag I've been making during the sew along. I've shown my progress on Instagram, you should go follow me on there ready for next time!

I was given this beautiful blue and purple wool tartan fabric from my friend at church, Janet. She'd had it sitting in her attic for a number of years and decided she was never going to use it so gave it to me. As soon as I saw it I knew that it was destined for a Companion carpet bag!

I paired it with this 'navy' faux leather (it's more of a cobalt blue) and these purple leather handles from Bobbin Girl.

More than enough space inside this 'Small' Companion Carpet bag!
I snuck a half moon magnetic snap from Emmaline Bags on the front pocket to see how it would look and I'm sure you'll agree, it looks great!

Don't forget there's still time to sew your own bag, we can't wait to see your version!
