I posted last week about the shameful state of my "sewing room". It had become a dumping ground and was just awful. There was no way you could use the space for sewing or get your creative juices going in such a messy room. BUT when it was cleaned, sorted out and looked inviting, I got back in there and did some long overdue sewing.
Clockwise from top right-
My new lunch bag, a cutlery wrap and a new bag
I have used the same pattern for both bags, I have used this pattern many time as it is simple and you can make it any size you like. My lunch bag is skinny and tall with 3 x 5 inch squares wide and 4 x 5 inch squares tall, I originally didn't have handles on it, just making it a fold over with a button and loop but I missed being able to carry it, so I unpicked it, made handles, threaded them through and sewed it closed again, it is much more practical now.
The bag I made is the same principle, except each block is made up of 4 x 2 1/2 inch panels sewn together. Each block is slightly different with each panel of fabric in a different order. I then sewed them together with one going vertical next to one going horizontal and so on.
Have you been in your sewing room lately? What have you been making?
