Bucket bag for London

Well, the good news is that I can't believe how quickly this week is going and that its Thursday already tomorrow!

Over the weekend I finally got round to making a bag, and I used the  reversible bucket bag from Sewmamasew

It was a really easy pattern and I only made one short cut: I boxed the bottom, rather than making a seperate piece and I love how it has turned out.

I am ashamed to say that this was the first time I have ever made my own bias binding - and it was nowhere near as awful as I thought it would be!

My sister in law made me a fabric brooch a while back - it could have been made especially for this bag

I think this just might be the bag that I take to London in June!!


  1. Now that's definitely a bag for showing off in the big City! Jxo

  2. Oh it looks great but will it be big enough for all the things you are going to buy?

  3. Looks like a great bag for June - funnily enough, I just bought a bias tape maker this week....

  4. I absolutely ADORE that blue/white floral print. I'd like to know more about it! Cute bag, I used to make bags a lot (that's how I got started sewing) and I really should make myself a new purse, too. Jealous you get to go to London! (but hope you have a super great time, of course!)

  5. yep great back for the big smoke!

  6. God, I'm going to be the only one in London with nothing handmade, aren't I?!! Ace bag.

  7. That's a lovely bag - perfect for summer in the city!


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a message
