Most of you know that I tend to sew bags as gifts whenever a friend has a “noughty” birthday. I was able to combine the need for a present for Anne with the need to test-sew for Linda of Craft Apple – so here I present to you Anne’s Tailored Bag!
Did you notice the lack of leaves on the trees? I took these photos back in July! There are two versions of this bag in the pattern, and you can mix elements. This one has a ruffle feature on each side and a zippered gusset closure at the top. I love the chunky zip!
The fabrics came from GJ’s, but have been sitting in stash for some time. One day I fortuitously stacked them near one another, then realised that they’d combine beautifully into a bag! The large floral is a heavier weight fabric, so is perfect for bag making. There are interior pockets too.
Anne loved her bag and whenever I see her I hear reports on how many people have asked where she bought it. She replies that you have to turn noughty to get one!
