Chocolate & Raspberry Messenger Bag

SOLD - thanks for all your lovely comments about this bag, I wish I could've made more!

Not made using jeans this time, but the remains of my chocolate and raspberry fabric. A wonderfully soft, tactile fabric made into a messenger bag.

Lovely milk chocolate taffeta lining.

Two internal pockets
Longer length strap can be worn across the chest.

Commission Bags

I haven't made many bags to put on the folksy site lately, but I have been busy with commissions! Claire wanted a Jean Genie in bright colours, so I used cerise chenille teamed with indigo denim and lined it with a pieced patchwork of red satin and purple cotton on the flap, and soft navy cotton inside.

Then Sarah sent me some fab chicken fabric to make a tote bag for her. It looked great teamed with a cornflower blue slub linen!

If you like my bags, but can't see one in your favourite colours, do drop me a message and I will see what I can do! xx

Blue Rose Jean Genie

I've not been able to do much sewing lately - busy with the boys and the allotment.

But my friend wanted a Jean Genie so it was good to have to make some time to sit and sew again. This one is a pretty combination of stonewashed Levis and vintage chintz.
And I finally had some proper labels done, so this is the first 'designer' label!
I also realised it's the first to be made on my new machine. I am pleased to say it coped admirably with all the layers of denim! My last machine really struggled with these bags. Can't wait to do some more now!
