Bag Making Time

After three long weeks perfecting my new bag design I have managed to finish four! These two are tagged, bagged and ready to be sold. (The other two were sold as soon as they were finished!) As well as making some more of these I am also  in the process of designing and making some small recycled denim shoulder bags. Hopefully I will have a couple completed next week, ready for a preview here.

These bags are made with recycled fabric. There is a zip, with hand sewn charm, and button closure at the top. A double slip pocket inside, and a large slip pocket along the front. The handles are long enough to be comfortable over the shoulder. The base is made using plastic milk bottles, (tutorial available here).

Using my diy quilted fabric (tutorial here) has made them nice and sturdy, I love fabric bags that can stand up on their own. And they can be put through the washing machine if they get a little grubby. I hope you like them.
