Whaaaaaaa!!! Final bag of the Put it in the Bag Challenge is in the books!!!
So love this bag. So Love! It’s sturdy and roomy and I love the colors!
Look at the inside!!!
Both the exterior and lining for this bag are cut from upholstery fabric. Very expensive, even with a coupon, expensive upholstery fabric. But I have to admit that I have a fair amount left of both pieces of fabric (because upholstery fabric is very wide) and this stuff makes for a great bag.
I got this pattern from Brett Bara’s Sewing in a Straight Line. The pattern was very clear and easy to follow (I know that I say that a lot, but I only like to working from well written patterns – I don’t like wasting time trying to figure out what a author/designer meant to say). The only modification I made was to the straps. I didn’t like the way the interior material looked as straps so I just continued to use the exterior material without any trim as straps and I think it came out great.
Although I think the bag is pretty classy and done really well, Bailey isn’t impressed. That’s okay though, I’m really happy with this bag and the other bags I made for this challenge (here and here).
I hope everyone enjoyed this challenge and has some great bags to show for it!
