Love Sewing issue 6 Shoulder Bag

After a extremely stressful week at work and at home one of which included my beloved dog to go missing luckily he was found by the police quite far away from home who sent him to the dog warden who brought him back to me 23 hours later a massive thank you to everyone’s kind messages and to the police and dog warden πŸ˜ƒ we are all so very happy he is home safe and well.  

 I decided that some sewing was called for after all that, so a look through my magazines for inspiration and this is what jumped out at me to make.

So after cutting out 26 separate pieces it was fairly straight forward, starting with ironing with interfacing followed by sewing the main body of the bag using a T box or flat bottom seam for the bottom of the bag, next the D-ring tabs, bag flap, and the main tab.











Next up was the lining pockets nice and easy pockets and sewing the main body lining together followed by sewing the king to the main bag pulling through/right side out, top stitching around the top of the bag, then the bag strap a good iron and Ta-Dah a bag πŸ˜Šβ˜ΊοΈπŸ˜„


I used my new bag today when I went out for lunch with my three beautiful girls, it held all my stuff from my old shop brought handbag and it didn’t fall apart πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜„πŸ˜€ X
