Sweet Pea Tote – FinishedPosted: August 24, 2013
Well it has been a miserable wet day here in West Yorkshire, but I have been hard at it in the sewing room and my first ever bag is finished.
I’m really rather pleased with it.
The exterior fabric is purple Corduroy. The interior is a divine Kaffe Fassett print called Jupiter, in shades of pinks, lilacs, mauves, orange etc. It really is lovely and co-ordinates perfectly with the purple.
For the interior pockets I used some scraps of pink cotton sateen. I also added a key leash with a dog clip, because I find those so useful.
Things I learned.
My sewing machine doesn’t like fusible fleece.
Or large amounts of interfacing.
Or sewing through more than a couple of layers.
The pattern is intended for quilting cottons and not for heavier fabrics.
But I like it and will sew it again.
Apologies for the poor photo quality, they were taken with artificial light as it’s such a gloomy day. I might re-take them tomorrow.
