At the end of my recent Fairy God-Sister post I said I was making a new bag for myself.  Well, it is all done and dusted. 

Tada……….

 I really love my new bag.  It is wonderfully spacious – something I really need because I seem to always have a lot to cart around.

 The fabric range I have used is Echo by Lotta Jansdotter.  I had been in love with this fabric range for ages before we had it instore at Ballarat Patchwork.  When it came in I grabbed some quickly.
 The pattern I have used is Black Forest by Australian designer Melly and Me
 I modified the pattern a little by adding internal pockets to the lining on both sides of the bag.
 I love the little pleats on the outside pockets – just a lovely little design feature.

A few years ago on a girl’s drive into the countryside with my Fairy God-Sister we happened on a great button shop that had all manner of vintage buttons.  I bought this large celluloid button just because I loved it and, what do you know, it works with this project perfectly.

So thanks to my new little beautiful black beauty (all the sewing was done on her – I should tell you her name is June after my Beloved Grandma) I have a new modern bag.
I will be entering my bag into the Sew Sweetness Purse Palooza Flickr competition (on flickr I am Knitting Maide).  There are many fantastic bags linked up.  Go and take a look.

Until next time, happy quilting, knitting, sewing, crafting ….
